Ronan Fanning, Professor Emeritus of Modern Irish History in UCD has died.

Among his publications were a recent biography of De Valera, and a history of the Department of Finance.

I'd imagine that many P.ie posters have read his books and articles, a number might have even being taught by him in UCD.

Very sad news. Just read his biography of Dev and greatly enjoyed it. Fatal Path is one of the best history books written in years.

My condolences to his friends and family.

Sad news and 75 is young.
Unlike his counterparts at Trinity he struck me as objective.

Unless I'm mixing him up with someone else, think he had a stammer but never allowed that to impede him.

If one has nothing good the say about a dead person, one should say nothing so I will say nothing.
