President of Sinn Féin Mary Lou Mc Donald TD deeply regrets the news of the death of Cormach Murrihy in New York yesterday.

Teachta McDonald said:

“We learnt yesterday with great sadness of the sudden death of Cormach Murrihy in New York.

“Our deepest sympathies to Cormach’s wife Vivienne, his son Cian and daughter Caoimhe, his mother Margaret and his brother Ciaran and to his many many friends in America and Ireland 

“The news of Cormach Murrihy's sudden and untimely death has shocked and saddened his family and friends and the Irish American community in New York.

“Cormach was an active supporter of Friends of Sinn Féin and believed passionately in the reunification of Ireland.

“He said recently: ‘It is what motivates me to help the fundraising efforts through Friends of Sinn Féin. I firmly believe that unity is the best future for Ireland and that it is achievable and essential for all the people of Ireland.’

“Cormach was a pivotal figure in the building of the Rockland County GAA ground and clubhouse and hosted a visit there by former Sinn Féin president Gerry Adams in July 2017 and who has said that Cormach will be sadly missed and remembered always with deep affection and gratitude.”
