Former Taoiseach Albert Reynolds to lie in state in the Mansion House

Lord Mayor Christy Burke has granted the use of the Oak Room in the Mansion House for the lying in state of former Taoiseach Albert Reynolds on Saturday 23rd August.
 
The public can express their sympathies and sign a Book of Condolences between 1pm and 6pm on Saturday. Lord Mayor Burke has also expressed his deep regret on the death of the former Taoiseach yesterday. 
 
He says “I am saddened by the death of Albert Reynolds.   He served this country with great distinction, integrity and honour and played a vital role in the restoration of peace in Northern Ireland.  His contribution to the development of the peace process by opening channels of communication between the various political parties should never be underestimated.  I extend my sincere sympathy to his wife Kathleen and his family.
Ar dheis Dé go raibh a anam dhilis.”
