Statement by Minister Helen McEntee on the death of Dr Vicky Conway
I am deeply saddened to hear of the death of Dr Vicky Conway.
Vicky made an important contribution to Irish society through her academic and professional work.
She was a member of the Commission on the Future of Policing in Ireland and served two terms as a member of the Policing Authority, making a substantial contribution to developing the oversight of policing in Ireland.
Her voice has been a prominent one in relation to policing and criminal justice, and was at all times one of conviction and challenge. Her deep commitment to the human rights of the most vulnerable was evident in all of her work.
I would like to express my heartfelt condolences to Vicky’s family and loved ones, her friends, colleagues and all the students she inspired through her teaching. Vicky’s untimely passing has shocked and saddened us all.
May she rest in peace.
