Taoiseach Leo Varadkar has told the Sunday Independent that he was “very sorry that John Reynolds has left us”.

Speaking after last week’s funeral Mass for the music promoter, who died recently aged 52, Leo added: “I only ever spoke to him once – on the phone when he parted with Electric Picnic – but I come from a generation who owes him a great debt.

“He opened up so many new social and musical experiences for us, whether it was the POD and RedBox as students, or the Electric Picnic as thirtysomethings.
