Shocking news to hear of Derek’s (Marsey’s) sudden passing. All the fond memories flooding back from CBS Roselawn and Lucan Sarsfields . What a player he was. Hurling, Football. Nothing but 100%, every time. Great fun to be around. Genuinely one of the good guys and always looked out for his friends. A no-fuss, get it done, work hard, play hard legend. Gone way too soon. My heart/chest is hurting today.

My sincerest condolences to the Maher family.

Rest in peace Marsey
