The death has taken place of the wife of former Taoiseach Albert Reynolds.
Kathleen Reynolds, who had been ill for some time, passed away this morning at the family home in Dublin.
The 88-year-old was a native of Culfadda, Co Sligo and was the mother of seven children.
She supported her late husband throughout his political career, and travelled with him on foreign trips, when the Longford TD served as Taoiseach between 1992 and 1994.
Albert Reynolds died in 2014.
