I AM honoured to see every day how Eunice Kennedy Shriver's work continues to transform the lives of millions of people with intellectual disabilities, and their families.

This week last year the world lost a remarkable woman and a dear friend of Ireland in Eunice.

On the first anniversary of her passing tomorrow, it is fitting to honour her and to celebrate her lasting legacy.
