Sinn Féin Leader Mary Lou McDonald TD has expressed condolences to the family and friends of Fr Joseph Mallin following his death in Hong Kong this morning.

Teachta McDonald said;

“Fr Mallin was the last surviving son of Michael Mallin who was a leader of the Irish Citizen Army during the Easter Rising.

“He had shown remarkable energy and dedication during the latter years of his life to ensure that his father’s memory, and his heroic contribution to cause Irish of freedom, were rightfully vindicated in the face of politically motivated British court martial records.

“I want to extend my condolences, and those of Sinn Féin, to the family and friends of Fr Mallin at this sad time.

“Ar dheis dé go raibh a anam.”
