Tributes have been paid to former TD Peter Mathews, who has died at the age of 65.
He was elected to the Dublin South constituency in the 2011 election, but left the party in 2013 after voting against the Protection of Life During Pregnancy Bill.
He contested last year's election but lost his seat.
Mr Mathews confirmed last year that he had been diagnosed with cancer.
A number of Dublin politicians have paid tribute to Peter on Twitter.
