Taoiseach Micheál Martin statement on Deputy Chief Medical Officer Ronan Glynn

I would like to wish Ronan Glynn all the best as he prepares to step down as Deputy Chief Medical Officer and thank him for his outstanding service to the Irish people.


I worked very well with Ronan throughout the pandemic, and his unstinting, dedicated and tireless work in fighting COVID-19 was so important to the health and wellbeing of the nation.


Ronan’s calm demeanour and knowledge of Public Health played a significant role in our national effort throughout the pandemic.


I thank him for taking up the role of Acting Chief Medical Officer, as well as his contribution to the National Public Health Emergency Team.


Ronan personifies the very the best of Irish public service, and I wish him well in the future.
