Tourism Ireland’s Dermot Hogan has sadly passed away last week, after a short illness.
The Coach Tourism Council said of Dermot: “A stalwart supporter of the CTC and a board member for many years, Dermot was the face of Ireland for everyone involved in the coach and group travel industry, running the Tourism Ireland stands at countless exhibitions and acting as organiser and host of many Irish family trips.
“Above all he will be remembered for his cheery, welcoming nature, friendship and quite simply, his Joie de Vivre. He will be missed by countless people and we are sure everyone will join the CTC in sending their thoughts and best wishes to Dermot’s widow Joan, his daughters, family and colleagues, at this difficult time.”
CBW understands Dermot’s funeral was due to take place on Tuesday October 25.
