David Anderson was perfect man to welcome guests to NI
Northern Ireland prides itself on its hospitality to visitors. David Anderson was a man who took that pride to another level.
As the manager of Hillsborough Castle he was used to welcoming the Queen, US Presidents, political leaders and even the Dalai Lama.
As the face of the province to distinguished outsiders, we could not have chosen better.
The hospitality industry was his life, but given his role and the momentous events which took place at Hillsborough, he needed to be a man whom his guests could trust.
It was a heavy burden to carry but he did it with style and grace and won the admiration of all who knew him.
