30th May 2022 - Fine Gael Press Office

Tánaiste and Fine Gael Leader Leo Varadkar has expressed his condolences on the death of Mary Jackman, former Fine Gael Senator and Councillor for Limerick.


Mr Varadkar said, “I am deeply saddened to hear of the passing of Mary Jackman. With almost 30 years of service on Limerick City and County Councils, Mary was one of the longest serving public representatives in her local community when she retired in 2014. I knew her personally, worked with her and met her on very many occasions. She will be sorely missed.


“A dedicated public representative, Mary served her area proudly and was the first female chair of Limerick County Council.


“Mary also served two terms in the Seanad, between 1989-1992 and 1997-2002, and was elected Cathaoirleach in 1999.


“My sincere condolences go to her husband Nicholas, daughter Nicola, and all of her extended family.”
