Statement by An Taoiseach, Leo Varadkar on Marian Finucane

I am stunned and deeply saddened to hear of the death of Marian Finucane.


She was a true broadcasting legend who reshaped current affairs radio in Ireland.


Ireland will miss her voice. Weekend mornings will never be quite the same again.


I spent many hours in the studio with Marian. She was thorough, courteous and professional. I’m very sad to think that we won’t hear her voice again on the radio.


The deepest sympathies of the Irish Government to her family, friends and colleagues.
