Former Past Student, Kevin O’Sullivan (1972-1997) was recently appointed Editor of the Irish Times. Kevin. a native of Tramore, Co. Waterford is the 13th Editor of the paper which was founded in 1859. His appointment as Editor also means he joins the Board of the Irish Times.

Kevin studied Science after leaving Glenstal and on his graduation took a year out and worked as Inter Housemaster here in the School from 1981 to 1982. He then went to D.C.U. to study journalism. He worked for the Connaught Tribune and the Tuam Herald before joining the Irish Times in 1997. Before his latest appointment Kevin worked for the Irish Times as Night Editor, Special Projects Editor, Science Editor and Editor of the paper’s Health and Supplement Section.

We wish Kevin every success in his new and very demanding job. No doubt his time as a student and housemaster here in Glenstal will have given him ample training for the task ahead.
