Comments attributed to me as reported on in the Clare Champion on or about 23 August 2020 may have been viewed as totally unjustified criticism of Ms Rose Hynes in her capacity as Chairperson of Shannon Group plc.
This was not my intention. While we may have differences on issues of policy and strategy, I hold Ms Hynes in the highest regard as a businessperson, as a Chairperson and member of many boards in Ireland and as an individual.
I unreservedly retract any suggestion to the contrary and apologise to Ms Hynes for any embarrassment my statement may have caused to her and her family.
