John Madden one of the leading mediators and arbitrators practising in the Republic of Ireland passed away during the summer. Mr. Madden a dual American and Irish national started his career in New York and began to split his time between Dublin and New York about 15 years ago. James O' Donoghue, the present vice-chairman of the Irish branch, noted ' John originally was an engineer and then qualified as a lawyer in America and developed a very significant practice as an arbitrator and mediator with extensive experience in complex and high value construction disputes. When he began to spend time in Dublin the ADR and legal community were quick to make use of his obvious talents. He will be sorely missed by a wide group of friends and colleagues. He was very generous with his time and happy to share his professional experience informally and in a more structured way as a lecturer. We both taught on a Diploma in Arbitration the Law Society of Ireland ran here a couple of years ago and John was as comfortable talking to a small group of students on a Saturday morning as he was working on very significant disputes here such as the Dublin Port Tunnel.'
