Sinn Féin TD Martin Ferris has said he is deeply shocked to learn of the passing of Shane McEntee today.

Deputy Martin said Deputy McEntee was no nonsense type of politician with a deep commitment to rural Ireland and a love of the GAA.

He said;

“Shane was deeply respected by politicians from across the political divide. He was a no nonsense type of politician who was always friendly courteous.

“I had many dealings with him in my role as agriculture spokesperson and I always found him a pleasure to deal with.

“We shared many conversations about rural Ireland and we shared a love of the GAA.

“He will be sadly missed. My thoughts are with his family at this sad time.”
