  • Hard to believe a few photos I took for small Belfast project have went so far and wide but unfortunately linked in a context I've hard to suffer before as a photographer. Lyra was just an amazing girl I photographed, hiding in the library trying not to get thrown out. Her passion and humour was amazing. 
She loved the photos we took that day and the comments from the media are reflecting that sentiment on how she looks  in the photos but it's hard with two  emotions from different places. Maybe some day we will not have to endure this suffering in this country.

  • So painfully sad to hear of Lyra's murder. A young woman with so much more ahead of her. Taken by the violence she often wrote about.

I don't know what else to say. Thinking of all her family and friends.

If you can help towards costs for her funeral, you can do so here.

There will be a vigil at the Guildhall at 5pm today x

  • Freelance journalist Lyra McKee was fatally injured late Thursday night during riots and a police operation in Londonderry, Northern Ireland.

McKee, 29, was hit with a bullet when a gunman opened fire on police in the #Creggan area of the city, and died in the hospital.

In a statement, Deputy Chief Constable Stephen Martin of the Northern Ireland police said they launched a probe into the killing. The circumstances of her killing were not immediately clear.

The last killing of a journalist in Northern Ireland was in 2001, when prominent investigative journalist Martin O'Hagan was shot dead as he was leaving a pub in the town of Lurgan.

  • I searched for a quote and could find nothing that could deliver what I feel.  My heart is broken that the amazing town of #Derry is again witness to violence, death, and bloodshed. Journalist Lyra McKee was shot and killed, likely in the background of the terrorist's target. It is particularly heartbreaking to me as she wrote of what it was like to grow up gay in her corner of our world... Two of the most outstanding experiences of our trip were from Derry and #Belfast. A Protestant and a Catholic each shared the trials and the horrors of living during the #troubles, then the joy and thankfulness of the #peace. They were both so ready to embrace the future, and so understanding of everything that had occurred. There are so many great people whom are still healing from the Troubles.  If you believe, #prayforpeace #goodfridayagreement #ira #uk #downwithnewira #ireland #freederry  #lgbt #gayjournalist #cliffselfphotography #rip #journalist

  • A heartbreaking story from Derry/Londonderry on this Good Friday. A young Northern Ireland journalist, Lyra McKee, was killed in a terrorist incident last night while reporting on the recent rioting in the city. McKee, an advocate and activist of the #lgbtq community, was named a “rising star in investigative journalism” and was recognized by @forbes as one of its “30 Under 30 Europe.”

Sending my love to her family, friends, and community ❤️ may her commitment to truth and legacy live on.

It’s especially disheartening to hear the rise of rioting this week, 21 years after the Good Friday Agreement 😔 McKee, 29, wrote “The Ceasefire Babies was what they called us...those too young to remember the worst of the terror because we were either in nappies or just out of them when the Provisional IRA ceasefire was called...we were the Good Friday Agreement generation, destined to never witness the horrors of war but to reap the spoils of peace. The spoils just never seemed to reach us.” - McKee

Also sending my love to my friends and people of #northernireland. Prior to this news, I had already been watching @netflix’s #derrygirls this week. It’s a comedic take on being a teenager in the city in the 90s. Curious to learn more? Start with the show (but understand it’s a show) and start reading credible sources.

  • "Violence only creates victims, thats all it ever has done. "

In letzter Zeit höre ich immer wieder unschöne Nachrichten aus meiner ehemaligen Heimat Derry #Auslandssemester #Nordirland.
Und es macht mich traurig. Selbst als ich vor ca. 5 Jahren ein halbes Jahr lang in dieser schönen Stadt gelebt habe gab es sie schon...die Gewalttaten, die Trennung, Free (?) Derry... Ich weiß,  ich werde die Hintergründe nie ganz verstehen. Dafür bin ich einfach nicht so sehr in den Communitys verortet, hab die Geschichte nicht miterlebt und trotzdem. Egal ob Unionist oder Republikanhänger. Brachiale Gewalt kann doch einfach nicht die Lösung sein. Protest ist wichtig und es gibt in Derry zwei sehr gespaltene Lager. Aber wie wird er geführt? zu welchem Preis? Eine junge Frau ist gestorben. Eine junge,  aufstrebende Journalistin. Und sollte uns der politische Hintergrund, die Meinung nicht egal sein? Es war ein Menschenleben, was völlig sinnlos genommen wurde.

Mich macht das Ganze ziemlich nachdenklich und ich Frage mich, wo das alles noch hinführen soll. Und gleichzeitig sehe ich auch Parallelen zu Deutschland. Auch wenn die Themen vielleicht andere sind, wollen Menschen im Grunde doch nur eins: gut, sicher und in Frieden leben. Frieden. Das ist hier wohl das Stichwort

  • Journalist Lyra McKee, 29 years old, was shot and killed on Thursday, April 18 2019, while covering a riot that had broken out in the Creggan area of Derry. 
Her partner, Sara Canning, said this: “Our hopes and dreams, her amazing potential was snuffed out by a single barbaric act.... “This cannot stand. Lyra’s death must not be in vain because her life was a shining light in everyone else’s life." #lyramckee #ireland #irish #northernireland #derry “Her legacy will live on in the light that she’s left behind.”

"And why did I come today? I came to stand in solidarity with all of the people who are here today. "I want to say your pain is my pain. It doesn't matter whether you are a Catholic or a Protestant. Whether you identify as Irish or British." Speaking in the Creggan area of Derry, DUP leader Arlene Foster pays tribute to murdered journalist Lyra McKee.

  • Such an awful thing happened in Derry last night- a city of which I have fond memories of. A terrorist attack. A bright and amazing young woman killed as a result. A sad day for Ireland! RIP Lyra. #RIP #lyramckee #derry #londonderry #lgbt #notinmyname

  • Today I had to explain to Cayden why I was crying randomly. I could've made something up but I decided to tell him the truth, I told him that his Auntie Sara lost the love of her life thanks to a barbaric act of unnecessary violence (I of course told him in an age appropriate manner before anyone comes at me). My best friend had to make the phone calls that no one should ever have to make and tell her loved ones that Lyra had been shot and killed. 
I hadn't met Lyra in person but I knew her well, she was my best friends fiancée and she was the one that my best friend was supposed to grow old with. But now my best friend has to find a way to live without her, her family have to move on without her and I'll never get to meet the woman that made my best friend happier than she's ever been. All because of some absolute cunt of a person who committed such a heinous crime that didn't need to happen.

My heart breaks for Ireland, it breaks for Derry and for the people who have to try and move on without this shining light in their life. My heart breaks most of all for my best friend, Sara.
RIP Lyra, you will never be forgotten 💛🖤 #rememberlyra #lyramckee #heartbroken #riplyra #derry

  • On the eve of Good Friday, Lyra McKee was killed in Derry by a masked gunman while reporting on violence her generation was meant to be free from. She lived and loved in a Northern Ireland still without LGBT+ equality. Take time today to read her work. She wrote this for @mosaicscience #lyra #rip #northernireland #derry #truth #goodfriday
