26 December 2012: The Arts Council expresses regret at the passing of poet and Aosdána member Dennis O'Driscoll

The Arts Council has expressed its deep regret at the passing of poet and Aosdána member Dennis O'Driscoll.

Speaking today, Pat Moylan, Chairman of the Arts Council said, " Dennis O'Driscoll's poetry was always astute and insightful. He was a tremendous supporter of other poets, particularly the younger generation, and held an encyclopaedic knowledge of Irish poetry and literature. His presence will be deeply missed in the literary community."
