An Taoiseach, Leo Varadkar has paid tribute to former Ceann Comhairle Sean Treacy on his death at the age of 94.


“Sean was a giant of politics from the 1960s to the 1990s. He gave proud service to the people of Tipperary, and particularly Clonmel.

“A former Mayor of Clonmel, he was first elected to the Dail in 1961, where he served for 36 years. He also had extensive service at local authority level, was a Munster MEP for three years, and held many other positions in public life. 

“He is particularly remembered as an impartial, fair and independent Ceann Comhairle. I know that is how he will be remembered by many members of the Dail. Our thoughts are with his family and friends at this time.”
