The officers and staff of the Irish Dental Association were greatly saddened to hear of the recent passing of Fionnuala O’Brien, a former member of staff at the Association. Fionnuala is especially associated with her work as Journal Administrator and as Personal Assistant to the Honorary Editor of the Journal, a position in which she served with great dedication and commitment. She finished work with the Association in 2019 after more than 21 years’ distinguished and valued service. Fionnuala was a highly regarded and popular member of staff who was known to many members over the years as a friendly, courteous and highly professional member of our team. On behalf of the officers and staff of the Association, we extend our deep and sincere condolences to Fionnuala’s family and friends.
