Tributes after death of top news snapper
TRIBUTES have been pouring in following the death of talented news photographer James Flynn.
James worked on numerous assignments for the Irish Mirror and other national newspapers for almost two decades.
Based in Tullamore, Co Offaly, he covered almost every big story in the Midlands during that time.
Senior Mirror reporter Pat Flanagan said: “We’re still trying to take it in that James is gone.
“He was a great guy and pleasure to work with and the first snapper we’d call when anything was going down in the Midlands.”
Irish NUJ Secretary Seamus Dooley added: “James was a thorough professional with a very positive attitude.”
