RTE’s authoritative Political Correspondent David Davin-Power is to retire today.

Davin-Power began his career working in RTE radio before becoming RTE’s Northern Editor.

He held that post for seven years before he was appointed Political Correspondent in 2001.   

RTE Health Correspondent Fergal Bowers described Mr Davin-Power as a “legend of broadcasting” and praised his “witty insights”.

He added that Davin-Power’s “superb use of English language will be missed”.
