The death has taken place of Shannon Sinn Féin Clare County Councillor Mike McKee.

The 62-year-old had been battling illness in recent months but retained his seat in the Shannon Municipal District in this year’s local elections despite being too ill to canvas.

Sinn Féin President Mary Lou McDonald TD has extended her deepest condolences to the family and friends of Mike McKee.

Ms McDonald said: “I want to extend my deepest condolences to the family and friends of Mike McKee who passed away earlier today at University Hospital Limerick following a short illness.

“I send, in particular, my deepest sympathy to Mike’s wife Eileen, his son David and his daughter Janette, as well as two grandchildren.

“Mike was a true Irish Republican and a great champion of the people of Shannon, which was reflected in his continued election to Shannon Town Council and Clare County Council over many years.

“He represented the people with great pride for over three decades and anyone who ever met Mike knew of his sincerity and decency.

“I know that this is a very sad time for party members in Clare and the wider Mid-West region and I extend to them my solidarity at this very sad time.

“Ar dheis Dé go raibh a anam dílis.”
