Editor Of The Kerryman To Retire After 15 Years At The Helm

Editor of The Kerryman, Declan Malone.

THE editor of The Kerryman, Declan Malone, is to retire from his position after 15 years.

The Dingle native revealed his decision in today’s newspaper. He will remain editor for the time being until a successor is chosen. Mr Malone joined The Kerryman in 1989 on a month’s work placement and never left.

He started out as a sub-editor, progressing to Deputy Editor in 1994 (under then editor, Ger Colleran), before “getting the start” as he put it many years ago, in the top job in 2000.

He oversaw numerous changes over the years with the newspaper changing from broadsheet to fully ‘compact’ in 2008 (the Tralee Edition changed to compact in 2006) and the newspaper’s move from Clash to Denny Street in 2007.

Having worked previously with Declan for 15 years, I can certainly say he deserves his retirement having given so much of himself to The Kerryman.

Best of luck with whatever you do in the future Declan.

    BEst of luck on your new ventures Declan, as a kerrywoman I love reading the Kerryman to catch on local and county news and anytime I feel nostalgic I log on. This for me is gold dust.
