    Denis O’Brien, the chairman of telecoms firm Digicel, is to receive an honorary law degree from the University of the West Indies (UWI) later this year.

    Former Jamaica footballer Ali McNab, Special Olympics football patron for the Caribbean here in the southern California city for the World Summer Games, made the disclosure to OBSERVER ONLINE on Friday evening.

    “I have with me two letters from Prime Minister Portia Simpson Miller. One is for Special Olympics Jamaica Executive Director Lorna Bell congratulating her and wishing the Jamaica team good luck.

    “The other is to Denis O’Brien thanking him for inviting Jamaica to this dinner and congratulating him on his service to the Caribbean, and not just Jamaica. UWI has seen it fit to bestow on him an honorary doctor of law degree later this year,” McNab said at a mellow welcome reception put on by O’Brien at the Westin Bonaventure Hotel.

    O’Brien, who was said to be engaged in board meetings, was not present at the barbeque dinner. He was, however, represented by John Delves, the regional chief executive officer for Digicel’s markets in Trinidad & Tobago, French West Indies, Suriname, and Barbados.

    “Mr O’Brien is not here tonight, but his representative has received the letter from the prime minister and it should be in Mr O’Brien’s hands by Sunday [today],” McNab said.

    Jamaica was the first country that Digicel entered in the Caribbean. The island remains the mobile company’s most lucrative market worldwide

    All quiet on the Irish Media front ? In 2016 Denis O'Brien predicted wholesale massacre and crisis. RTE seems to be quietly up for carve up, with sale of lands, an end to inhouse children's tv perhaps symptomatic of much more to come ? The current output of the Irish mainstream seem to be parochial and anodyne enough to wallpaper a nursery wall with.
