The death has taken place in Dublin of Joe Lynam. Joe was 73 and worked for RTÉ as a showjumping reporter in the early 1980s.
He frequently covered events in Millstreet (especially in the 1980s) and the RDS for Saturday Sport on RTÉ Radio One with Jimmy Magee.
He knew many figures in the showjumping community and was very close to RTÉ’s Darragh and Eddie Mackin.
