Tributes pour in for legendary Irish businessman Sir Anthony O’Reilly who has sadly died age 88




Businessman Tony O’Reilly has sadly died in Dublin following a short illness aged 88.

Sir Anthony O’Reilly was surrounded by family members when he passed away in St Vincent’s Hospital today.

Mr O’Reilly’s family said in a statement to RTE: “In the coming days there will be many worthy tributes made to Tony O’Reilly’s unique and extraordinary achievements in the fields of business and sport.

“As well as his extraordinary philanthropic vision which was best evidenced by the establishment of the Ireland Funds at a dark time in this island’s history.

“But, for us, he was a dearly-loved dad and a granddad. He lived one of the great lives and we were fortunate to spend time with him in recent weeks as that great life drew to a close.”
