“Aside from politics, Francie had a love of the Irish language and made a huge contribution to the world of Irish music and culture.
“I want to send my condolences to his wife Anne, their children Joe, Proinnsías, Conal, Áine and Nollaig, the entire Brolly family and everyone who knew Francie; my thoughts are with them at this sad time.”Ar Dheis Dé go raibh a anam.”
