Statement from Minister for Agriculture, Food and the Marine Simon Coveney T.D. on the death of former Minister Joe Walsh.

"I am very saddened to hear of the passing of Joe Walsh former Minister for Agriculture. Joe made a very significant contribution to West Cork as a Senior Minister there for many years, but he will be remembered nationally as a long serving and successful Minister for Agriculture. In particular his handling of the 2001 Foot and Mouth crisis marked him out as a Minister who provided calm and steady leadership at a very difficult time.

My thoughts and sympathies are with his family and friends at this time".
