The Taoiseach says he is saddened to hear of the death of the former British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher.
The 87 year old died peacefully this morning following a stoke.
In a statement Enda Kenny described Mrs Thatcher as a formidable political leader who had a significant impact on British, European and world politics.
Meanwhile, the British Prime Minister David Cameron says her death marks a "truly sad day for our country."
Mrs Thatcher will not receive a formal state funeral but will have a Ceremonial service with military honours - the date of which has yet to be set.
