Statement by Tánaiste and Fine Gael Leader Leo Varadkar on the death of Vicky Phelan

14th November 2022 - Leo Varadkar, TD

Today Ireland has lost a woman of limitless courage, compassion and strength. I want to extend my deepest sympathies to Vicky’s family, particularly to her children on the loss of their incredible mother.

Vicky was a shining example of the power of the human spirit.  Her fight to uncover the truth and the courage with which she faced her illness made her an inspiration to us all.

We mourn her as a nation, as a society, and as individuals.

Ar dheis Dé go Raibh a hAnam.
