The Workers Party has expressed its condolences to the family circle and friends of May Blood who has passed away aged 84.
May was a life-long member, and active supporter of, the trade union movement, a tireless and vocal advocate for integrated education and a champion of better living and working conditions for working people.
May Blood was a humanitarian, a progressive campaigner and a social reformer. Her energy, drive and, most of all, her commitment to improving the lives of working people regardless of their creed, colour or gender, should serve as an example to us all .
She will be sadly missed.
