It is with great sadness that we learned of the passing away of Professor Thomas McMahon, Past-President of the Irish Society of Occupational Medicine and a founder of our Section of Occupational Medicine of the European Union of Medical Specialties (UEMS) in 1995.
Prof McMahon was also a constructive, valued and very active President of the UEMS Occupational Medicine Section from the first Section meeting held in Stockholm 1996, until 2000. He left the section in 2007, after a wonderfully organized meeting in Limerick.
Prof. McMahon was a wonderful person and an excellent occupational physician: we, and more broadly the whole Occupational Medicine, owes so much to him.
All the colleagues of the Section of will always remember him with respect, great appreciation and warm feelings.
On the behalf of the whole Section, we express our sincere condolences and sympathy to the beloved wife Stephanie, and to Ivor, Robin and Nicole.
