I had the pleasure of being a student in his lectures at the School of Irish Studies, UCD in spring 1975. He engaged with the 40 of us from U.S. with great enthusiasm and humor, and enlivened the history for us. I will always remember his kindness and ebullience and how lucky I was to study with such a luminary.

What a lovely man - gentle, kind, scholarly. He once boasted he knew what Asquith had had for breakfast such was the depth of his meticulous research. What a pleasure to have been able to sit and listen to Ronan for three years. R.I.P and thank you for the wonderful lectures.

My condolences and thoughts to all the extended family and friends of Ronan. So sorry to hear the news and am remembering the many years we had a more regular contact for the good advice, warmth, intellectual correctives, humour and genuine tolerance he always showed me when knocking around his house as a teenager and young man with his son and my dear friend Gareth. Rest in Peace.

Sincere and deep sorrow at the loss of Professor. Fanning . Having worked at U.C.D. for 30 years our memories of him are of a true gentleman, who supported members of U.C.D, Staff, plus Student Union Staff.. He was a champion in showing respect for all who worked within the walls of University College Dublin., and for all who needed his help or advice.. May he Rest In Peace.
We will always remember him.
