Dr Tony Holohan receives Honorary Fellowship from RCSI

By Mindo - 10th Jun 2021

Ireland’s Chief Medical Officer Dr Tony Holohan has today received an Honorary Fellowship from the Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland (RCSI), in recognition of his “outstanding leadership” during the Covid-19 pandemic.

“I congratulate Dr Holohan on his award of Honorary Fellowship of RCSI,” said RCSI President Professor Ronan O’Connell.

“Dr Holohan’s contribution to Irish healthcare long predates the pandemic, yet this will be his legacy. Putting public health first, Dr Holohan has been transparent from the start, providing clear information which inspired trust and cohesion among a great majority of Irish people.”

Professor Cathal Kelly, RCSI CEO said, “Under Dr Holohan’s stewardship, early and decisive action was taken, putting Ireland in a stronger position to manage the first wave of the virus than our neighbours to the east and the west.”

“Since then, as we have moved through three waves, Dr Holohan has been steadfast and consistent in putting the health of Irish people first. We thank him for his service to our country and the outstanding example of public service and vocation he has shown for the healthcare leaders of the future.”

Following his graduation, Dr Holohan trained in General Practice. He went on to study for a Masters in Public Health, which he achieved in 1996, graduating with honours and in first place. He was awarded membership of the Faculty of Public Health Medicine in 1998 after undertaking a major project on the health of homeless people for his thesis.

Dr Holohan was appointed Deputy Chief Medical Officer in the Department of Health in 2001, a role he had for 8 years before being appointed Chief Medical Officer.
