Patricia Ryan TD calls for National Day of Mourning for victims of Covid-19

Sinn Fein TD for Kildare South and the Portarlington area of Laois Patricia Ryan has called for a National Day of Mourning to remember victims of Covid-19. 

Teachta Ryan said: “This pandemic has affected the country massively. Over 1,700 people have died in the space of 3 months. It is important that we, as a nation, remember these deaths in a meaningful way when it is safe to do so. Given the unique Irish rituals surrounding the death of a loved one has been disrupted in such a fundamental way, we must ensure that a fitting tribute is paid to those who have died. A paid public holiday must be provided so that everyone can have the opportunity to participate in remembering those who have died. The Taoiseach has said in his reply that an appropriate event to remember the victims of Covid-19 is being considered.”
