Statement by Michael Creed TD, Minister for Agriculture Food & Marine on the passing of Austin Deasy

“I’m saddened to have learned of the passing of my former colleague, and one of my predecessors as Minister for Agriculture Austin Deasy.

Austin was a significant presence in Dáil Éireann during my early career as a TD, and I always admired his robust forthright approach to politics.  He will be remembered fondly not only in his native Waterford but amongst the agricultural community across the Country.  My sympathies go to his family, particularly his son, our friend and colleague John.  

Ar dheis Dé go raibh a anam.”
