10 October 2022

Labour Party Leader Ivana Bacik TD has today (Monday, 10th October) paid tribute to Billy Kyne and extended her sympathies to his family, friends, Waterford Labour comrades, and former colleagues on Waterford County Council and Dungarvan Town Council.

Deputy Bacik said:

“Billy was a dedicated public representative who gave all his working life to our movement. He was a true son of Abbeyside and the wider Dungarvan community. He truly lived his values. A proud Labour man from a strong Labour tradition stretching back almost eight decades. He had a generous spirit, was a mentor to many and will be remembered as an utterly kind man with sharp political instincts rooted in the community he loved so well.

“I wish to extend the heartfelt condolences of the entire Labour family to his wife Kay, his children, grandchildren and say that our solidarity and thoughts are with his extended family and wide circle of friends.

“Ar dheis Dé go raibh a h’anam dílis.”
