I, too, join in the expressions of sympathy on the passing of Peadar Clohessy. I welcome his children and extended family to the Distinguished Visitors Gallery and the Visitors Gallery. He was an outstanding public representative in and from County Limerick. He was completely committed and dedicated to his family, community and constituency. Above all, he was completely committed to the people within his constituency, regardless of their political point of view. That was the marked key to his success, as articulated by other speakers.
It is fair to say and worth noting that the Clohessy family have been on the political landscape in County Limerick for generations. Peadar Clohessy followed in the proud tradition of public service which had been instilled in him by his late uncle, the former Deputy and great Limerick hurler, Paddy, and his late father, Andy, who had cultivated in him at a young age a keen interest in politics. They attended many political events and political party meetings together. This generated the spirit of public service which was to flourish and grow into a full-scale career at local and national level.
What rounded and grounded Peadar Clohessy was his many keen interests outside of the world of politics. They served to inform and help him in his role as a public representative. He had a notable interest in history, education, folklore, the countryside, farming and, of course, the GAA. Other contributors during these expressions of sympathy have noted his keen interest in the GAA in Limerick. He took to his grave the yearning for Limerick to put to bed the bogey of 1973 - Limerick has not won an all-Ireland hurling championship since - something we all share.
I was proud to have known Peadar Clohessy. Although his long and distinguished career never overlapped with mine, I express my thanks and appreciation to him for his often sound advice and encouragement from which I benefited. Outside the Chamber we all act as constituency public representatives.
