Mary Lou McDonald TD expresses condolences to the family of Seán Treacy
Sinn Féin Leader Mary Lou McDonald TD has extended sympathy and condolences to the family of former Ceann Comhairle Seán Treacy following his death.
Ms McDonald said;
"Seán Treacy had a long and distinguished career as a public representative. He spent almost four decades in political life serving as a TD for Tipperary South, MEP for Munster and as Ceann Comhairle.
"Seán was known for his outstanding knowledge of parliamentary procedure and for spearheading innovative reforms within the Dáil. He was also recognised for his unflagging commitment to the people of his constituency.
"I know his passing will be strongly felt by many, but particularly by those in Tipperary to whom he gave immense service for so many years.
"On my own behalf, and on behalf of Sinn Féin, I want to extend sympathy and condolences to his family and friends at this sad time."
"Ar dheis dé go raibh a anam."
