Dublin TD Tony Gregory dies
Friday, 2 January 2009 14:56
Independent TD Tony Gregory has died at the age of 61.

The Dublin Central independent TD passed away today after a long illness.

Reacting to the news, Sinn Féin councillor Christy Burke said Dublin Central had lost a champion for those marginalised in our society.

'It's the people's loss. There will never be another Tony Gregory,' Mr Burke said.

Born on 5 December 1947, Mr Gregory was first elected to the Dáil in 1982. He was a member of Dublin City Council from 1979 until 2004.

Tony Gregory first came to national prominence when he negotiated a multi-million pound deal for the north inner city to ensure his support for the minority Fianna Fáil government in 1982.

He was first elected that year as an independent left wing TD although he had started out as a member of Official Sinn Féin and was later a founder member of the breakaway Irish Republican Socialist party.

But he often said he felt he could best represent his constituents as an independent rather than being strangled by party politics.

On his first day in the Dáil he caused comment when he turned up not wearing a tie, he explained many of his constituents could not afford ties.

Later in the 1980s he served time in Mountjoy prison along with Cllr Christy Burke in support of Moore St traders.

Originally from the North Strand area of the north city he worked for a time as a history teacher before entering politics.

He is survived by his brother Noel and partner Annette.
