Tyrone mum-of-four dies after being struck by car in Bulgaria
Rosaleen Donaghy’s family have been in touch with a local politician asking for help in repatriating her body.

TRIBUTES HAVE BEEN paid to a Tyrone mother-of-four who died in a collision on Friday.

It is believed that Rosaleen Donaghy, from Donaghmore, died after apparently being struck by a vehicle while holidaying in Bulgaria.

SDLP MLA for Mid-Ulster, Patsy McGlone, expressed condolences following the tragic death.

He said that Rosaleen’s family has been in contact with his office seeking assistance with repatriation of her body.

“I will do all I can to help them at this very sad time,” he said.

This is tragic news for the Donaghy family, their friends and the local community. A sudden death at any time is understandably traumatic, however, when it occurs abroad it must be very distressing. My thoughts and prayers are with the Donaghy family at this very difficult time.

The Irish News reports that Rosaleen Donaghy was with her husband when the incident occurred, and that he was also hurt but did not receive life-threatening injuries.

They are believed to own a holiday home at a tourist spot in the Black Sea region.
