GENUINELY sorry to hear that former Ford Ireland chief Eddie Nolan passed away earlier this week.
He and I had a few battles, and many a laugh, during his tenure. He was straight, direct, open and extremely generous with his time when it came to worthwhile causes.
It is fair to say he was one of the characters of the motor industry.
May he rest in peace.
Our sincere condolences to Cintra, his sons and daughter.
