Fianna Fáil Leader, Micheál Martin TD, has expressed his deep sympathy on the death of David Charlton.
Deputy Martin said: “It was with great sadness that I learned of the death of David last night. David was the beloved husband of former Fianna Fáil TD and Tánaiste Mary Coughlan, who has been a friend and colleague for many years.
“On behalf of myself and the Fianna Fáil party, I would like to express my deep sympathy to Mary, her children Maeve and Cathal, as well as the Charlton and Coughlan families. Our thoughts and prayers are with the family at this difficult time.
