I bring to the attention of the House and note the sad passing of Professor Gerry O'Sullivan, the founder of the Cork Cancer Research Centre, who was a true visionary, not only in the world of cancer research but also in terms of having the ambition to set up something where nothing had been in place before, in the process earning a huge international reputation for his native county and city, as well as for his medical school and hospital. He launched many careers on the national and international stage of young people who worked for him, to say nothing about the many patients throughout the country who owe their lives to his work. The House should acknowledge his sad passing, if it has not been acknowledged already. May he rest in peace.
