HW BUSH SE­NIOR: 1924-2018

MICHAEL D Hig­gins led the Ir­ish trib­utes yes­ter­day and of­fered the na­tion’s sym­pa­thy.

He said: “Pres­i­dent George Bush will be re­mem­bered for his long life of pub­lic ser­vice to the people of the United States, and as a pres­i­dent who led his coun­try at a pe­riod of sig­nif­i­cant change at na­tional and global level.

“To his pres­i­dency of the United States, he brought all of the en­ergy and the val­ues he cher­ished, drawn from his Texas and Mas­sachusetts roots.

“He will be re­mem­bered, too, for the di­rect­ness with which he ex­pressed his pol­icy prin­ci­ples and his ef­forts to achieve bi­par­ti­san­ship.”

Taoiseach Leo Varad­kar also ex­tended his sym­pa­thies to the Bush fam­ily say­ing he was “a no­table pres­i­dent who left his mark on US pol­i­tics”.
