It is with the deepest regret that the Workers Party has learned of the death of Margaret O’Leary.
Margaret was a dedicated and class conscious activist, steeped in the struggle of ordinary working people. Her sterling work with the Irish People newspaper helped to make that publication the success it became.
Her commitment to women’s rights, her significant contribution to the production of Women’s View magazine and her unswerving belief in equality for women, coupled with her understanding that women do not stand apart from the class struggle, made Margaret the great socialist that she was.
Margaret O’Leary was a woman of great compassion and principle.She stood with the Workers Party through many of its most important struggles and made unstinting efforts to advance the cause of young people, women and the working class.
Margaret’s comrades, who knew her over the past five decades, deeply regret her passing. The Northern Ireland Executive of the Workers Party sends its condolences to her family, friends and colleagues.
