My deepest sympathies on the passing of Dr. Dark. He taught me mathematics in my first year in college and was a great lecturer. Always extremely well dressed and I remember him on his bike. May he rest in eternal peace.

Although I never knew Rex, I felt I did because I would meet him regularly on the greenway during Parkrun and he would always say hello and give a big smile. I shall miss him now. Sincere condolences to Michael and family. May he rest in peace.

Pat and Shirley Larkin, Castlebar
Deepest sympathy Michael on the loss of your brother. We often chatted during tea and coffee break after the service in Holy Trinity Church, Westport. We always found our conversations very engaging and most enjoyable covering a wide range of topics, current affairs, politics, history, travelling etc. Manys a chuckle we had together. Rex will be badly missed. A real gentleman. May he rest in peace.
Declan Prendergast, Bohola
Sincere condolences to Michael on the sudden death of your brother Rex. I remember Rex as a wonderful teacher of Mathematics in UCG during my time there in the late 70s. A gifted lecturer with a great sense of humour. Go ndéana Dia trócaire ar a anam.
