I don't mean this thread as a comprehensive list of people that have died, just people that have died quite recently. I like the Jim Carroll song.
Former Arts Minister Séamus Brennan dies
The former Fianna Fáil Minister, Séamus Brennan, died in the early hours of this morning at his home in Churchtown in Dublin.
Séamus Brennan - Had been ill for some time
He was 60, and had been unwell for some time.
Séamus Brennan was appointed Minister for Arts, Sport and Tourism on 14 June 2007 but after the resignation of Bertie Ahern he stepped down from the Cabinet.
He had been on the Fianna Fáil front bench, whether in Government or in Opposition, continuously since 1987.
A former General Secretary of Fianna Fáil (1973-1980), he was first elected to the Dáil in 1981.
Born in Galway, he made his home in Dublin from the early 1970s, and represented Dublin South from the time the constituency was created.
