Date: Wed 2nd Feb, 2022 | 12:37

“People in political and sporting life in Galway and beyond will be saddened to have heard of the death of Noel Treacy.

Noel represented the people of Galway East as a TD for almost 30 years and served as a dedicated public representative and Minister of State across a wide range of portfolios over the course of his political life.  An engaging and courteous parliamentarian, he was deeply committed to his constituents. As a former chair of Galway GAA, Noel gave generously of his time and energy and was always at the heart of his community in all their activities.

May I send my deepest sympathies to his wife Mary, his children and grandchildren, and to all his family and friends.

Suaimhneas síorí dá anam.”
