Shocked & saddened with Damien's passing. Very fond memories of my older cousin looking after me as a kid. Although we saw each other only sporadically after we both left Ireland, usually when Damien visited my late sister Dolores, I did hope one day soon we could meet up for quality time together. May he rest in peace.

I will remember Damien so fondly. He was a complete gentleman who cared about people. As a person whose uncle came from Dublin, we shared many stories. My children, in their thirties loved speaking with him. I will miss him. Vince McFadden
