An Taoiseach Enda Kenny, T.D., congratulated Community Activist, Martin Quinn, at a photo call with the Taoiseach in his office at Government Buildings on Wednesday.
The Taoiseach paid tribute to Martin on his great community work and on his selection last May as Tipperary Person of the Year and said he was delighted to see that Martin has made a very good recovery, having suffered a series of strokes last year. Martin spoke to the Taoiseach of the plans to present the Tipperary International Peace Award to US Diplomat, Richard Haass, later this year and invited the Taoiseach to be present for the ceremony. Martin is Hon. Secretary of the Tipperary Peace Convention, Chairman of the South Tipperary Development Company and of the Canon Hayes Recreation Centre in Tipperary Town, and a past President of the National Community Development Organisation, Muintir na Tíre.
