The Cathaoirleach of Seanad Éireann, Denis O'Donovan, has expressed his condolences to the family and friends of the late former senator Feargal Quinn.

Mr Quinn served as a member of Seanad Éireann for 23 years for the National University of Ireland constituency, and most recently served as part of the 24th Seanad, 2011-2016.

Senator O'Donovan said: “The contribution that Mr Quinn made to political, business and social fabric of our country was immense. I would like to express my condolences to the wife, children and grandchildren of Mr Quinn.

“Mr Quinn was hugely popular with all members, and across party boundaries, and a great voice for the University panel. He went about his work in a diligent and dignified manner.”
