Dr Kevin McCoy

It is with great sadness that we report the passing of our dear friend and respected colleague Dr Kevin McCoy. Kevin passed away following a short illness. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family at this time. May he rest in eternal peace.

Kevin was a highly respected person in a wide variety of circles. He was the Chairman of the Board of Áiseanna Tacaíochta since February 2017 and contributed in a significantly positive way to the development of ÁT as an organisation, giving of his time in a voluntary capacity.

Throughout his career Kevin served in very many senior and influential positions across a wide range of national and international organisations and government departments; including as Chief Inspector, Social Services Inspectorate N. Ireland; as Commissioner of the Inquiry into Child Abuse on behalf of the Government in the Republic of Ireland; and more recently with the Office of the Ombudsman for Children in Ireland.

We will miss him greatly. May he rest in peace.
