Coveney Expresses Sympathy at Passing of Colm Murray

    - A TRUE GENTLEMAN, LOVED BY EVERYONE IN THE HORSERACING INDUSTRY -

Minister for Agriculture, Food and Marine, Simon Coveney TD today expressed his sadness at the passing of racing correspondent Colm Murray.

Colm Murray was a true gentleman and a passionate supporter of horseracing and all sports. He was loved and respected by all who met him.

His passing is very sad for all who knew him in sporting circles and I know the horseracing industry in particular value the strong commitment and passion Colm showed to their sport and livelihood.

He has been both supportive and encouraging to me as a Minister on numerous occasions at horseracing events and will be remembered fondly by all who knew him.

I extend my deepest sympathies to his wife Anne, daughters Kate and Patricia and family and all those close to him throughout his career in RTE.”
