The Members of IASTA wish to extend their sincere sympathy to the wife and family of George Mullen – a former lecturer of Agricultural Science in both UCD and UL, who sadly passed away today (Sunday 22nd Jan 2017). “Ar Dheis De go raibh a anamh.” George was a founding member of IASTA and served as Secretary in its infancy. He was also a former Honorary President of IASTA. Most people would associate George, along with his UL colleague John Breen, as co – author on one of the first Agricultural Science Textbooks. May he rest in peace.
