Labour TD for Tipperary Alan Kelly has extended his sympathy to the family, friends and supporters of former Ceann Comhairle and TD for Tipperary South, Seán Treacy.
Deputy Kelly said:
"I am very saddened to hear today of the death of former Ceann Comhairle and Labour TD for Tipperary South, Seán Treacy who provided decades of service to the constituency and in particular the people of Clonmel.
"Seán preceded me as TD in Tipperary and MEP in Munster, and I know he will be greatly missed by all who knew and served with him, whether as Councillor, TD or MEP.
"In particular he will be remembered for being returned seven times to the Dáil alongside a further three terms when he served as Ceann Comhairle.
"He made a huge contribution to our county and our country, and in particular his immense service as Ceann Comhairle and on the Council of State.
"Ar dheis Dé go raibh a anam."
