Baroness May Blood, the former Labour peer and president of the Labour Party in Northern Ireland, has died at the age of 84.
The Belfast woman served as a peer in the House of Lords from 31 July 1999 before retiring in 2018.
She previously worked in a linen mill from 1952 to 1989 before going on to become involved with the Northern Ireland Women’s Coalition in the 1990s.
The peer was regularly involved in community work throughout her life, running a training project for long-term unemployed men in the Shankill Road and also being involved with the Greater Shankill Partnership.
She was awarded an MBE in 1995 and also held honourary degrees from Ulster University, Queen’s University and the Open University.
Paying tribute to her, former First Minister Dame Arlene Foster said: “I am very sorry to hear this sad news. She was a force of nature always using her voice in a positive straight talking way whether in the House of Lords or on the Shankill Road. Deepest condolences to those closest to her.”
