Issued 28 November 2017

Labour leader Brendan Howlin has today paid tribute to Denis Landy following the announcement of his resignation as a member of Seanad Éireann.

Deputy Howlin said:

“Denis has been a loyal and faithful servant to the Labour Party for many years. As a councillor, Mayor, Dáil candidate and member of Seanad Éireann, he has always represented the best of Labour values.

“Unfortunately, Denis has been suffering from ill-health for some time, and has now made the decision that he is unable to continue as a member of Seanad Éireann.

“On behalf of everyone in the Labour Party, I would like to thank Denis for his service, and wish him the very best for the future. Our thanks also to his wife Nancy and son Liam, who continue to support him during his period of ill-health.”
