More than 100 RTE colleagues gathered at RTE News studio today to say their goodbyes to one of the country’s most famous political voices, David Davin-Power.
The political correspondent has said farewell to the State broadcaster as he says he’s starting a new challenge.
Bryan Dobson said: “David is an outstanding communicator. We all know that when we listen and watch him. And even off air when he explains a story to us his capacity to simplify but not to distort often quite complex stories is really something to behold.”
Jon Williams, the managing director of RTÉ News and Current Affairs, said:
He said: “In all the places that I have worked his analysis and ability to tell a story is without peer.
“He is going to leave very big shoes to fill. David has had a fascinating and truly storied career, his career has been the story of this island and that is something that is truly remarkable.”
