    Death Notice of Kevin Geraghty (

    Sad to hear this,
    Formerly OC 14th Inf Bn, His son Roy was also a technician in the army from the early 80s. Kevin is possibly the first member of the Defence forces I knew, as I was in primary school with his other son, and lived not far away. A true gentleman, and well liked by those who worked with him. Joined the army as a recruit, and ended up in Cork for his sins having completed a Potential Officers course, in the late 70s, possibly one of the first of its type.
    He can be seen in an army recruiting video of the time, 34 seconds in, he's the NCO on parade.
    Have learned since he also served in 2 Inf Bn in Cathal Brugha and 1 Fd Sigs in Collins Bks, as well as overseas with 10 IRCOMP UNIFIL.

    May he rest in peace.

    For now, everything hangs on implementation of the CoDF report.
