It is with shock and sadness that we learned of the death of Jack Dromey MP.

Jack was a true friend of the Irish community in Britain and a great ally of the Federation of Irish Societies, championing representation and equality.

His Irish heritage, of which he was very proud, stood him in great stead for his work as a trade union leader and as Member of Parliament for Birmingham Erdington where he continually showed his deep commitment to solidarity and justice.

Our thoughts are with Harriet and his family at this very sad time.
