Taoiseach Enda Kenny on passing of former Taoiseach Albert Reynolds
Taoiseach Enda Kenny attends the burial of former Taoiseach Albert Reynolds
It is with great regret that I learned this morning of the death of former Taoiseach Albert Reynolds.
I extend my sympathies and condolences to his wife Kathleen, his children and his extended family on his sad passing.
I also extend my sympathies to Fianna Fail leader Micheal Martin and to the Fianna Fail party on the death of their former leader.
Albert Reynolds brought an energy and drive to the development of business and economic growth during his tenure in office as Minister for Industry and as Minister for Finance.
As Taoiseach he played an important part in bringing together differing strands of political opinion in Northern Ireland and as a consequence made an important contribution to the development of the peace process which eventually lead to the Good Friday Agreement.
