Chancellor expresses sadness at death of Seán Flynn


On learning of the death today of Seán Flynn, Irish Times Education Editor, Dr Maurice Manning, Chancellor of the National University of Ireland said ‘Knowledgeable commentators on Irish universities are rare in Irish journalism. They play a valuable role in contributing to public understanding of the transformative effect of university education on the individual and on society as a whole and also in providing a necessary and healthy critique of the sector. As Education Editor at The Irish Times Sean Flynn made a notable contribution in both of these areas. His untimely death is a loss both for Irish journalism and for higher education and I extend my sympathy to his family ’.
