John Daly R.I.P.

With great sadness, we report the passing of our dear friend and colleague, John Daly.

John was a stalwart member of the ISTA, acting as an officer at a local level in the Dublin Branch and at the National level, being a former Chairperson & Chemistry convenor. John taught Chemistry at Blackrock College where he inspired generations. He received the ISTA Science Educator of the Year Award in 2002 and the prestigious Lodge Award this year.

He will be greatly missed by the science community in Ireland, and his many friends.
We express our sincere condolences to his wife Deirdre and his family.
Ar dheis Dé go raibh a anam dilís.
