Sinn Féin TD for Louth Gerry Adams has expressed his “deep sadness at the death of his friend Ulick O'Connor.”

Teachta Adams said: 

“Ulick was a strong republican. He first  spoke on a platform with me in the 1980’s. He was a strong supporter of Féile an Phobail and brought his play Executions and other works to the Féile.

"He was also a regular visitor to Sinn Féin Ard Fheiseanna for decades until ill-health prevented him from attending. 

"He was a fine poet, artist, social commentator, athlete, author and playwright. 

"I want to extend my sincere condolences to Ulick’s family and friends. Go ndeanfaidh dia trocáire air."
