• I would like to express my sincere sympathy to the family and friends of the late great editor of your sister newspaper, the 'Sunday Independent'.
Aengus Fanning was the driving force behind loyal and highly-motivated journalists who, as often as not, put their own safety at risk when confronting terrorists and drug traffickers.
His passing will leave a great void in Irish journalism. We can only hope that his successor will display the same level of commitment to the good and decent values he embodied.
