Mr. Adams described Mac Anna as ‘a committed republican’ who will be sorely missed by his friends and family.

The Sinn Fein leader said:

“I have known Tomás for many years. He was a committed republican with a passion for the theatre, the Irish language and the arts.

“Tomás played a pivotal part in modernising Irish Theatre.

“He will also be very fondly remembered by republicans for the advice and help he provided in the production of a number of national pagents.

“Tomás will be sorely missed by many and I want to extend my sincerest sympathies to his family.”
