The Olympic Council of Ireland is saddened to hear of the passing of legendary sports writer Sean Diffley at the age of 85.

In a very full career, the Dubliner was renowned for his coverage of rugby football and for his love of athletics.

Sean covered the 1968 Mexico and 1972 Munich Olympic Games for The Irish Press and he later moved to the Irish Independent.

He will be missed and the OCI sends its condolences to his family and colleagues.
