Mr Robinson said, “Tommie was a titan of a journalist who not only got to the heart of the story, but built relationships with everyone he met, right across the divide. His ability and personality throughout 41 years with RTE cemented him as a rare, unique and unsurpassed professional.

Throughout 30 years battling cancer he has not only helped support many others in a similar position, but it undoubtedly influenced his outlook on life and his work.

I assure Ceara, Moya and Joe of our prayers and deepest sympathy at this most painful time. I hope that they might find some comfort from the affection and respect in which Tommie was held by many, many people.”
