STATEMENT ON THE DEATH OF NELSON MANDELA

Cork North West TD Michael Creed has expressed his sadness on the announcement of the death of former South African President Nelson Mandela. Commenting on Mandela’s passing Deputy Creed said:

“Rarely – if ever- does the entire world pause to mark the passing of just one man. It is testament to Nelson Mandela’s immeasurable legacy that his death is mourned in every corner of the planet. I was fortunate enough to meet with President Mandela in 1995 and I will forever be deeply grateful for the opportunity to come face to face with a man whose footprint will be etched in history for eternity.

“Mandela proved that a life dedicated to people can be a life well lived. In an age where those in public office are held in low esteem, Nelson Mandela will continue to be the definitive benchmark for those who hope to serve their people. May he rest in peace”.
