T. K. Whitaker- R. I. P.

I once spent some interesting days in the National Archives  exploring the details of the Ireland’s first application to join what was then the European Economic Community. What was very clear from the papers I examined was Dr Whitaker’s technical competence, his  passionate love of his country, and his determination to do all he could to  promote the prosperity and welfare of all  the Irish people. Rarely can a state have been so well served by a civil servant. May he rest in peace.
