NUJ expresses condolences on death of Derek Davis

14 May 2015

The National Union of Journalists has paid tribute to Derek Davis, who died yesterday. As well as being a household name and a respected broadcaster, Derek Davis was a longstanding member of the NUJ.

Nicola Coleman, Irish Organiser, said:

"It was clear to his colleagues in RTÉ that he was a gifted entertainer, as well as a highly professional broadcaster. After working in the newsroom, he moved on to present a variety of shows. Among these was The Season That’s In it and Davis At Large, the latter of which won a Jacobs Award.
"His RTÉ colleagues knew he was a funny presenter, was exceptionally well-read, had unshakeable integrity and was enormously generous. The NUJ extends its condolences to his family, friends and former colleagues in the Irish national broadcaster."
