09 July 2008: Arts Council Chair expresses regret at the passing of Seamus Brennan TD

The Chair of the Arts Council, Ms. Olive Braiden has said she learned with great regret of the passing of Seamus Brennan, TD.

"He was our Minister for the Arts for just a short period, but in that time, as in all the other ministerial positions he held over the years, he took to the task with great energy.

"Because of those previous roles, especially that of Minister for Tourism and Minister for Education, he brought a wealth of experience to the job.

"He started from day one by meeting us, and assuring us that he was totally committed to working with us for the good of the arts and of artists.

Ar dheis Dé go raibh a anam dilís."
