STATEMENT ON THE DEATH OF FORMER FINE GAEL TD, BRENDAN MCGAHON
Mairéad McGuinness MEP and first Vice-President of the European Parliament has expressed her deepest sympathy to the family, friends and party colleagues of former Fine Gael TD for Louth, Brendan McGahon, who has died.
“Those close to him can take pride in his absolute commitment to public service and to social justice. He was very connected with the people of Louth and to see him walk the Streets of Dundalk you could feel the affection in which he was held by his constituents.
“He never lost that connection, he loved public service and always went about his duties with a great sense of fun.” she said.
“For me personally he was extremely helpful in my political career and I will always be grateful to him for that.
“Ar dheis Dé go raibh a anam.”
