Book of Condolences opens for Vicky Phelan in Cork County Hall

A book of condolences has opened in Cork County Hall by Mayor Danny Collins in memory of Vicky Phelan RIP.

Mayor Collins is inviting members of the public to sign the book and join people from all over Ireland and beyond in honouring Vicky’s legacy as “an inspiring campaigner for women’s health while facing her own illness with dignity”.

Mayor Collins said:

“I am deeply saddened to hear of the death of Vicky Phelan. Vicky’s campaigning to expose the controversy around the national screening programme Cervical Check put women’s health issues up front and central and to use her own words ‘Mná na hÉireann: this fight was for you.’ Vicky’s immense courage and determination gave a voice to women and will continue to inspire us to seek action, change and accountability for women’s health in Ireland.”  On behalf of the Elected Members and staff of Cork County Council, I wish to extend deepest condolences to Vicky’s family at this most difficult time.”

The Book of Condolence is available for signing in Cork County Hall and can be signed online by visiting
