Statement by Cllr Mary Freehill

Labour Councillor Mary Freehill has expressed her deep sadness on the death of her Director of Elections and Labour Youth Chair Cormac Ó Braonáin. Cllr Freehill paid tribute to Cormac, saying:

"Cormac was a superb Director of Elections for me in 2019, one of the best people to have in charge of your campaign, as he was a wonderful motivator of people.

"He endeared himself to everyone he worked with. He was a person of enormous integrity and incredible charm in both his personal and political life.

"For such a young man he showed an extraordinary level of maturity, and I will be forever grateful for his help and advice over the last year.

"Cormac had so much political potential and I had looked forward to working with him closely in the years ahead. He is a huge loss to our party, and I want to extend my deepest sympathies to his parents, family and friends".
