Fiona Ryan pays tribute to committed advocate Pádraigín Drinan

“I was deeply saddened to learn of the passing of Pádraigín Drinan this week. Pádraigín was a committed advocate for all those who suffered abuse including victims and survivors of historical institutional childhood abuse. She provided her professional knowledge and guidance to victims and survivors as well as much needed support. Her work with the Campaign for Survivors of Abuse brought her intellect to the cause of victims and survivors which she combined with commitment and kindness. I offer my sincere condolences to her family, friends and all who knew and loved her. May she rest in peace.”
