Chairman leads tributes as Council opens Book of Condolence for the late Mr. Liam Cosgrave

Wexford County Council has today opened a Book of Condolences for the family of the late Mr. Liam Cosgrave, former Taoiseach and Former Leader of the Fianna Gael Party.

The resolution to do so was passed at the recent October monthly meeting of Wexford County Council, having been proposed by Councillor Kathleen Codd-Nolan and seconded by Councillor Larry O’Brien.

The Book of Condolence was formally opened by Cathaoirleach of Wexford County Council Councillor John Hegarty. He was accompanied by Mayor of Wexford, Councillor Jim Moore and Wexford County Council Director of Services, Eddie Taaffe.

"Liam Cosgrave was deeply committed to serving the people of Ireland throughout his entire life and it is fitting that we provide this opportunity to the many people of County Wexford who wish pay tribute to his significant contribution to political life in Ireland” said Councillor Hegarty. “Liam Cosgrave was a person who devoted his life to public service and he was admired and revered among politicians and members of the public across Ireland." 

Mayor of Wexford Councillor Jim Moore described the late Mr. Cosgrave as a politician held in the highest esteem by people throughout Ireland, one whose contribution to Irish society continues to be acknowledged to this day, and one that has earned him a widespread and deserved admiration and respect.
