Co-workers set up fund for Trevor O'Neill's family

Dublin City Council has set up a fund to help the family of Trevor O'Neill, the council worker shot dead while on holiday in Majorca last month.

Co-workers set up fund for Trevor O'Neill's family

Mr O'Neill's colleagues have set up the fund to assist his partner Suzanne and their three young children in the months and years ahead.

Forty-one-year-old Trevor worked as a drainage inspector with Dublin City Council.

He was shot dead in front of his family on August 17 on the Spanish holiday island of Majorca - an innocent victim of a gangland feud.

As the couple were not married, Suzanne (pictured below at his funeral) is not automatically entitled to benefit from his pension. The Council is reviewing this rule.

To assist his family financially in the years ahead, his work colleagues have set up the Trevor O'Neill Memorial Fund with trustees including Dublin Lord Mayor Brendan Carr, colleagues from Dublin City Council and the IMPACT Trade Union.

Donations to the fund can be made by cash or cheque to Dubco Credit Union at 2, Little Green Street, Dublin 7, by debit or credit card over the phone on 01 8870400, or by electronic banking to the Dubco Credit Union Account {IBAN Number: IE69DUCU99101010608669 (BIC Code: DUCUIE21) }

Council staff say any donations will be gratefully accepted.
