STATEMENT BY FIRST LADY HILLARY RODHAM CLINTON ON THE DEATH OF JOYCE MCCARTAN
I am greatly saddened to learn of the passing of Joyce McCartan. My thoughts are with her family and friends at this time and with all the people in Northern Ireland whose lives she touched through her efforts for peace and reconciliation.
Joyce's commitment and energy were an inspiration to me and to women and men throughout Northern Ireland, and indeed throughout the world. The time I spent with her in Belfast will live on with me as a very special memory of my visit to Northern Ireland.
