Markus Casey

We learned yesterday of the death of Markus Casey in an air crash near Knock, Co. Mayo.

Markus was very well known in archaeological and aviation circles and was a former secretary of the Galway Flying Club. He ran a light aircraft maintenance company in Knock and was a consultant archaeologist, carrying out aerial archaeology surveys as well as terrestrial work. Well known and popular throughout the country, he will be sadly missed.

Liam Stenson (commenting on a piece in todays Irish Independent) puts it best –

A lovely, lovely man with a wicked but gentle sense of humour that often came in under the recipient’s radar, a wonderful pilot, great conversationalist and a true gentleman.
Ní bheidh a leithéid arís ann.
