Declan McAleer MLA said,

"Mairead was a bright, intelligent and personable young woman who had her whole life in front of her, but this was violently cut short last Monday. The huge turnout at her funeral on Sunday was testimony to the high esteem that she and her family are held. People travelled from all round Ireland and Britain to offer respect and solidarity."

"I spoke to members of Mairead's family during the wake and funeral and they took great comfort from the support that they were given by the wider Omagh community. This included people of diverse community backgrounds and many walks of life. 'There will be difficult days and months ahead for the Mc Callion family as they try to come to terms with the loss of Mairead. I want to express my own sympathy and that of our party and wider community to the family at this time of great hurt and pain.".
