Seán Ó Seachnasaí RIP

The staff and members of the Irish Dental Association were greatly saddened to hear of the recent passing of Dr Seán Ó Seachnasaí.
Seán served as a general practitioner in Raheny, Co. Dublin, until very recently, where he was a respected and beloved figure in his community. He was a highly popular member of the profession and an active member of the Association, particularly within the Metro Branch and the GP Committee.
Seán joined the IDA in 1993. He was a longstanding member of the GP Committee and took over the job of Honorary Secretary for the Committee from 2015 to 2017. At the AGM in April 2019 he was nominated to the role of President Elect, a role he sadly had to step away from almost immediately in May of that year.
Seán was a very popular overall winner of the 2018 Colgate Caring Dentist Award and was admitted to the Association’s Roll of Honour in May 2021 in recognition of his outstanding service to the profession and the Association.
The Association’s officers, staff, and his many friends and colleagues wish to convey their sincere sympathies to his family and his wide circle of friends.
