Tipperary Sinn Féin TD Martin Browne wishes to express his sincere condolences to the family of Martin Lonergan, following his death yesterday.
I knew Martin in a personal capacity over the years and worked with him during my time on Tipperary County Council.
He was devoted to his community and worked endlessly for the people of the Clonmel/Cahir Local Electoral area and was particularly dedicated to the people of his home village of Goatenbridge.
He will be deeply missed by the people he served unconditionally throughout the years.
Tipperary has lost a great man.
I wish to send my sincere condolences to Martin’s mother Maureen and all of his family.
