Death of Former Member

I ask the Leader to move the motion on the expression of sympathy for Dr. Seán McCarthy.

I move:

That Seanad Éireann –

- expresses its deep sadness on the death of Dr Seán McCarthy;

- conveys its sincere condolences to his family; and

- expresses its gratitude for his notable contribution, as a member of Seanad Éireann and Dáil Éireann, to Irish public life and for his dedicated service to the people of Ireland.

Members rose.
