"Peter Sutherland had a long and distinguished career in public service, at home and abroad and served in roles as varied as that of Attorney General to Director General of the WTO.
"He had a successful business career and was a particularly keen advocate on behalf of refugees, serving admirably as United Nations' special representative on international migration.
"On my own behalf, and on behalf of Sinn Féin, I want to extend sympathy and condolences to his wife Maruja and his three children Shane, Ian and Natalia.
