Doggie was one of those rare cox'ns - he made a difficult job look easy. A great man for a singsong and to play the guitar. Most of all, a fine seaman.

Doggie was one of the true gents in the NS. Served with him on Aisling back in the 80's. A really great guy, and will be sadly missed

Server with Doggie on the Deirdre and Eithne. So sad for a young man like Doggie to die, I have many good memories of him and I hope that he is well remembered.

The penultimate tradgedy in Doggies case is that his niece was murdered in Cobh in the last year or so. I know his brother and the man has never recovered.
