He said he had spoken with Director of Nursing at Melbourne Hospital who said Ms Molloy made a profound impact on all who encountered her in her work. 
"I have known the Molloy family for many years and I know only too well the pain and sadness they are suffering at this very sad time," he said.
"I wish to extend my heartfelt sympathy to her parents Terence and Angela and to her siblings
John Ross and Karl Joe as well as her many aunts, uncles including Cllr Anthony Molloy, cousins and her extended family."
"Ar lámh dheis Dé a bhfuil sí."
