David and Donal

We belatedly note and remember with sadness the passing of two  former colleagues who left this realm in recent weeks- David Black on October 26 and Donal Gilligan on November 12. (A notice of these deaths went to all former colleagues by email, at the time)

David worked in CTT for many years as an Arab specialist, trading, opening markets for Irish companies in tough places such as Lybia and Iraq.  He later became a Director of the Irish-Arab Chamber of Commerce

Donal, aided by the late Sally Hillin, was largely responsible for CTT’s public image, in the days before the internet, being the producer and publisher of most of our printed copy, reports, event brochures, and other “hard copy” propaganda.

Gentlemen both of them and will be long remembered by those they worked with. RIP.
