Photo: Tom Burke A former lecturer accused of making "offensive" comments in an email to Dublin City University (DCU) staff concerning the death of Dr Ann Louise Gilligan has had his account suspended, the university has confirmed.

At 11:30pm on Thursday, a tweet was posted containing screenshots of an email reportedly sent to members of DCU’s academic staff by a former St Patrick's College lecturer commenting on her death.

The writer expressed condolences but also made comments referencing the sexuality of Dr Gilligan and her wife Children's Minister Katherine Zappone, as well as their marriage and relationship.

This morning, DCU released a statement condemning the comments, insisting that the former lecturer's account was suspended as they went against the views and ethos of the university.

"The views expressed in this email are offensive. They were made in a personal capacity by an individual who is not a member of DCU staff," the statement read.

“The individual retired from St. Patrick’s College, Drumcondra a number of years ago. The university has suspended the email account of this individual.

“While Dublin City University supports the concept that universities are fora where views from many different perspectives can be shared and debated respectfully, we do not condone communications that run counter to our policies, ethos for respect and dignity for all.”

Katherine Zappone said yesterday she was “heartbroken” at the loss of her wife who she married in Canada in 2003, calling her “a champion of equality, fairness and justice."

Dr Gilligan had previously taught at both DCU and St Patrick’s College, Drumcondra.

St. Patrick’s College formally amalgamated with DCU alongside Mater Dei College and the Church of Ireland College of Education last year.
