Fianna Fáil Leader Micheál Martin has today expressed his condolences following the death on 26th October 2013 of former Fianna Fáil TD and Senator Denis Foley.

Deputy Martin commented, "I was saddened to learn of the death of former colleague Denis Foley. Denis represented the people of Kerry North as a Fianna Fáil representative for almost twenty years with diligence and great commitment. During this time he worked with colleagues from all parties to advance the interests and issues of his community.

"He began his career in local Government as a councillor on Kerry County Council where his daughter Cllr Norma Foley continues the family's tradition of public service as a committed local councillor.

"In the Dáil and the Seanad, Denis was a tireless champion for the interests of his Kerry constituents.

"On behalf of the Fianna Fáil party I would like to extend my sympathies to Denis's wife Hannah, their daughters Norma, Margaret and Denise, and son William at this sad time."

"Ar dheis Dé go raibh a anam."
