Former taoiseach Brian Cowen has paid warm tribute to Des O’Malley, who died last week, describing him as “one of the top parliamentary debaters of his or any era”.

Mr Cowen, who continues to make progress at home after suffering a serious illness two years ago, told the Sunday Independent the former Progressive Democrats leader “leaves behind a strong ministerial body of work including important legislation landmarks in the administration of justice and company law that are still operative here”.
