Date: Sun 19th Jul, 2020 | 17:00

So many people across Ireland will have learned with great sadness of the passing of Ruth Morrissey.  

Ruth Morrissey’s tremendous courage in an arduous campaign for truth and justice leaves a legacy of courage for all Irish people, and for those campaigning for women’s right to healthcare in particular.  

Sabina and I send our sincere condolences to her husband Paul, their daughter, her family and friends, and to all those who have shared Mrs Morrissey’s journey.
