Date: Mon 28th Dec, 2020 | 13:48

“Not only his colleagues in the Irish Examiner, but his many friends in the media and all those he dealt with in his career in journalism of over 55 years will have heard with great sadness of the passing of journalist, feature writer and news editor Donal Musgrave.

His work spanned a range of titles that make up the history of Irish journalism.

Recognised as a mentor to many in journalism, he will be remembered for a professionalism that included a kindness and a deep concern for the issues on which he reported.

May I offer my condolences to his wife Shirley, to their children and family, and to ahis colleagues and friends.”
