Alex Findlater (1937-2019) – Dublin Merchant

Alex Findlater, who died at the age of 81 after a riding accident in Jaipur, was one of the most determined, fun-loving, charitable men of his generation. It was in his blood. As chronicled in his immensely readable book, ‘Findlater – The Story of a Dublin Merchant Family,’ his forebears were Scots excisemen who founded the Dublin wine and grocery firm in 1823.
