Just read this very sad news about the death of Brendan McWilliams, the paper’s fantastic weather writer.

The Weather Eye column was one of those daily must-read pieces for me because of his writing style and knowledge. The fact that he produced a daily column for almost 20 years is staggering in itself – the fact that it was always interesting, erdudite, curious, witty and usually quite brilliant was another thing entirely. He will be sadly missed.

Una and Shane pay their respects.
