Portobello’s Finest


Tributes to Eugene Maloney on Camden Street, Dublin, where the Belfast-raised  journalist died last week, left by his neighbours from nearby Portobello.

Miranda Wright writes:

I knew Eugene, not personally, but a few times in Wall and Keogh Tea on South Richmond Street we chatted about music, Vietnam, the media, and loving the life out of Portobello. Who knew this area would be his death bed? So, so sad. Ireland needs to debate alcohol, violence, and tolerance and respond maturely. And sad to see this (above), but what a tribute from the community who loved him.
