Sinn Féin TD Martin Ferris has offered his condolences to the family of Emma Mhic Mhathúna, who has sadly passed away.
“It was with great sadness that I learned the news of Emma’s passing. I want to offer my deepest sympathies to her relatives and friends and especially to her children, Natasha, Seamus, Mario, Oisin and Donnacha whom she adored,” said Deputy Ferris.
“I want to recognise the contribution that Emma made to public discourse surrounding our health services and especially Cervical Check Screening.
“Emma knew there was no hope for herself but she continued to fight for proper health services for those she leaves behind.
“I hope her legacy will be the provision of a proper screening service for all women,” Deputy Ferris concluded.
