Sinn Féin President Gerry Adams has expressed his condolences to the family of folklorist and writer Daithí Ó hÓgáin
Deputy Adams said:
“Ba mhaith linn ár gcomhbhrón a dhéanamh le bean céile Daithí Ó hÓgain Caitríona agus clann mhic Aisling, Orla, Niamh, Rúán agus Sadhbh agus a ghar pháistí Lilí agus Cillian agus dá deatháireacha agus deirfiúracha.
“Daithí was dedicated to bringing the joys of our heritage and Irish folklore, legend, mythology and local stories to the people in both English and Irish through his books and writings. Daithí was very passionate about his work.
“He was an Irish language enthusiast who spent his whole life working through our native tongue.
“Daithí was also an Irish republican who served on the Ard Comhairle of Sinn Féin in the 1970s.
“His passing is a loss to his family to our country and to the people of Ireland.
“Ní bheidh a leithéid arís ann.”
