Paul Williams evening guest



He may write about Ireland's most wanted criminals for a living, but during the year News of the World journalist Paul Williams was the man most wanted....as he was special guest speaker of the Drogheda Rotary Club.
Around 60 members and their guests gathered in the Westcourt Hotel, West Street, Drogheda for the first evening event of the local club, and the controversial journalist said he was delighted to have been asked to speak as their guest.
'I spend most of my time mixing with the worst type of people in this country, and I have to say it makes a change to be in a room with so many men and women who do so many good things for their town,' he told Drogheda Rotary Club president Ger DeLoughry, who opened the proceedings.
'I can¹t say I have been to many Rotary Club meetings in my line of business, but I have something in common with one of your members Killian Logan, in that I was born in Ballinamore, Co Leitrim, so when he invited me, he said I better say yes, or else!'
The crime editor, who recently moved from the Sunday World to the News of the World, regaled the crowd with tales of horror from the grim Irish underworld, and took time to answer questions from the rapt audience.
'We were delighted that Paul took time out of his busy schedule to visit us
in Drogheda,¹ said Mr DeLoughry, 'and we look forward to more evening
events, with equally interesting guest speakers.'
