Statement by the Tánaiste on the release of Marian Price

I note the determination today by the independent Parole Commissioners for Northern Ireland that Marian Price is no longer to be detained and will be released to her home and to the care of her family and friends. Her detention and declining health have led to concerns across the political spectrum in the Oireachtas and I know that this decision will be widely welcomed on humanitarian grounds.
