Adams expresses sadness at death of Liam Ó Murchú
Sinn Féin Leader Gerry Adams TD has expressed sadness at news of the death of former broadcaster and author Liam Ó Murchú.
Teachta Adams said:
“I was saddened to learn today of the death of Liam Ó Murchú. Liam was an accomplished writer and broadcaster.
“He is remembered fondly by many, many people for his role as presenter of programmes such as Trom agus Éadrom and Up for the Final.
“He did much to promote the use of the Irish language among a mass audience and always encouraged non-fluent speakers to use whatever Irish they had.
“I wish to extend my sympathies to Liam's family and friends at this sad time.”
