Adams wishes Kirk well
Sinn Féin Leader and Louth TD Gerry Adams has expressed good wishes to Seamus Kirk, the Fianna Fáil TD and former Ceann Comhairle who has announced that he will step down from the Dáil ahead of the next General Election.
Gerry Adams said:
“Seamus Kirk has represented Louth in the Dáil since 1982. He served as Ceann Comhairle between 2009 and 2011 and as Minister of State at the Department of Agriculture from 1987 to 1992.
“Despite representing different political parties, I found Seamus to be a friendly and courteous constituency colleague who worked hard on behalf of the people of Louth.
“I wish Seamus and his family all the best for the future and thank him for all his work on behalf of our constituents for so many years.”
