The late Ciaran McCarthy

The late Ciaran McCarthy

The Cathaoirleach of Sligo County Council Councillor Seamus Kilgannon has expressed his sympathies to the McCarthy family on the sudden passing of Ciaran, founder and editor of news website Sligo Today.

‘Not only had Ciaran a keen interest in local news and events, he had a great pride in the town and county and was always keen to promote the positive viewpoint.  I first met Ciaran when he was establishing his website and had many discussions with him over the years.  He was one of the first to identify the potential of an on-line, instant news service, and always offered his unique perspective on the issues of the day.

I extend my own sympathies and those of my colleagues in Sligo County Council to the McCarthy family and his team in Sligo Today. 

Ar dheis Dé go raibh a anam.
