The Saint Lucia Blind Welfare Association (SLBWA) joins with the rest of the nation in expressing sincere and deepest sympathy to the family of well known RSL Sports Journalist Mr. Brian McDonald, in particular Lion Beatrice his sister, on his passing on Sunday, January 17, 2016.
We also express sympathy to his fans, friends and colleagues in the sports and media fraternities.
Like many other persons and organizations, Brian also touched our organization in a special way, always giving us his support where possible and especially in terms of coverage for some of our major sporting activities over the years, including some sporting events late last year.
“We saw him as one who was very dedicated and someone in the media that we could count on. Brian’s footprints are firmly anchored in the sports media landscape of St.Lucia” said Mr. Anthony Avril, the association’s Executive Director.
The organization believes that while there is mourning and sadness, there is also pride and joy to be found in the sterling contribution that Brian ‘Ipic’ McDonald made to the development of sports in his country and in his legacy of doing what he loved till the end.
