Tóibín expresses deep shock at the tragic death Minister Shane McEntee
Deputy Peadar Tóibín has offered deepest sympathies on behalf of Sinn Féin to the family of Minister Shane McEntee.
Deputy Tóibín said;
“It’s with deep shock and sadness that we learned of the tragic death of Shane this morning. Shane was one of the most passionate politicians that I knew. He did not go through the motions. He was straight talking and you always knew where he stood on an issue. If he believed something he put every drop of energy he had into it.
“Shane was a tremendous advocate for the people of Meath most especially those from a rural and farming background. He was steeped in the culture of Fine Gael and the GAA. This is a devastating blow most especially to his family and our thoughts and prayers are with them over this extremely difficult Christmas period.
“It is also devastating for his colleagues in Fine Gael who will be left shocked and numbed by his sudden loss. Meath has lost tireless campaigner today agus ní bheidh a leithéid ann arís.”
