Robin Swann pays tribute to Sir William Wright

The Ulster Unionist Party’s North Antrim MLA Robin Swann has described  the passing of Sir William Wright as a tremendous loss, not just to his family circle but also to unionism, the business community, the Loyal Orders and the Christian Church.

Sending his deep condolences to the Wright family circle, Mr Swann added:

"Sir William Wright will rank as one of north Antrim's most legendary figures. He built Wrightbus into a global brand and his dedication to unionism was also known throughout the globe, especially in his past role as a Ballymena councillor.

“He will always be remembered as a stalwart for Northern Ireland. His very sound political, business and Christian guidance will be very sadly missed by the entire community."
