21 Dec 2019
Donegal TD Leas Cheann Comhairle Deputy Pat 'the Cope' Gallagher has expressed his profound sympathy following the tragic death of Mary Ellen Molloy who died after a road accident in Melbourne.
Deputy Gallagher said when news of the tragedy broke on Friday evening, a deep sense of shock and numbness descended over Donegal.
"Mary Ellen, who comes from a highly respected Ardara family, was an energetic, caring, compassionate and intelligent young lady who emigrated to Melbourne 16 months ago and has been home twice since," Deputy Gallagher said.
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."
