Seán Óg Ó Ceallacháin passed away today, a much loved RTE broadcaster.
A number of RTE radio presenters paid tribute to him today, he seems to have been a very professional and courteous man, and sympathies to his family at this sad time.
In the link below there is a small biography about him, outlining his long career in RTE radio, I have one small bugbear about it, seemingly he retired only two years ago which means RTE employed him until he was 87, that's 23 years past retirement age.
Unemployment at over 14%, how are young presenters ever going to make a breakthrough when this continues.
I have nothing against Seán Óg Ó Ceallacháin as I said above, I have heard nothing today only good things about him, but is anyone ever going to take RTE to task over this kind of thing?
