Q INDEPENDENT Newspapers Group Managing Editor Michael Denieffe has paid tribute to his former colleague Colm Rapple, describing him as "a skilled analyst of economic and financial matters".

Mr Denieffe said: "He became a household name as a champion of consumer issues.

"He had trenchant, sometimes radical, views which featured in his writings and also in his approach to negotiations on behalf of the National Union of Journalists."

Mr Rapple is reposing at the Kirwan Funeral Home in Fairview this evening, with removal to the St Kevin's Church on Harrington Street in Dublin's south inner city at 5pm.

The funeral will take place tomorrow after 11.30am Mass, with burial afterwards at Glasnevin Cemetery.
