Leo Varadkar led tributes to Ms Mhic Mhathúna and praised her bravery in bringing her case to light.

"However, Emma will also be remembered as someone who fought for social justice in an exceptionally selfless way during times of great personal challenge", the statement said.

Vicky Phelan, whose High Court settlement last April originally exposed the non-disclosure of incorrect smear tests, described Ms Mhic Mhathúna as a formidable woman who had a huge impact.

The Health Service Executive says Ms Mhic Mhathúna's advocacy has been central to setting up the Scally Review; and say the 50 recommendations will undoubtedly improve the quality of screening programmes.

A funeral mass will take place in Kerry tomorrow, while there will be another memorial in Dublin on Wednesday ahead of her burial.

The mother-of-five from Co Kerry's death was announced on Sunday.
