There is much sadness in Longford following the death of former Fianna Fáil TD Peter Kelly (74), who passed away peacefully on Wednesday night (January 2, 2019) after a short battle with illness.

He was first elected to Longford County and Town Councils in 1985 and served a number of terms before he was elected to Dáil Eireann in 2002 for the Longford Roscommon constituency and was then re-elected in 2007 for the re-formed Longford Westmeath constituency.

Sympathy is extended to his wife Maura and daughter Emily, and sons Joseph and Peter. May he Rest In Peace. 

The gallery above features a number of images of Peter Kelly and you can scroll through  them using the arrows on top right of the photo.
