Professor Sean Tierney, RIP

In July, RCSI lost a dear friend and colleague, Professor Sean Tierney, Dean of Professional Development and Practice / Consultant Vascular Surgeon at Tallaght University Hospital RIP.   Professor Tierney has left an enormous legacy to RCSI through his contributions which are immeasurable.  He was a champion of lifelong learning in his role as Dean of Professional Development and Practice since 2011.  As an educator, he was deeply committed to promoting the highest quality surgical training in Ireland.  In his role as former President of the Irish Medical Organisation, he further ensured that the highest quality standards were maintained.  A constant innovator, Professor Tierney was always an early adopter of the latest technologies, techniques and procedures. 


Professor Tierney was clinical lead on the RCSI/COSECSA collaboration since its inception in 2007. He was awarded an Honorary Fellowship to mark his contribution to the collaboration, which has improved the standard of surgical care in East, Central, and Southern Africa by advancing surgical education, training and examinations. 


He is greatly missed as an inspirational leader and colleague to all who had the honour of working with him at RCSI and among the wider surgical community in Ireland and beyond.


We will remember him for his integrity, humour, generosity and wisdom.


May he Rest In Peace
