She is widely regarded as a transformative figure for Ireland, and for the Irish presidency, revitalising and liberalising a previously conservative, low-profile political office. She resigned the presidency two months ahead of the end of her term of office to take up her post in the United Nations. During her UN tenure, she visited Tibet, the first High Commissioner to do so; she criticised Ireland's immigrant policy; and criticised the use of capital punishment in the United States.
