My sincerest Condolences to Patricia and all the O’Dowd family for your tragic loss. I met Damien through working with my father (John) and have always enjoyed calling up to him at his office to discuss work , politics and GAA. I was really looking forward to seeing him this Christmas (as I do every Christmas). I am so sorry for your loss.

Deepest sympathies to Patricia, Deirdre, Brian, Helen and Anne and everyone connected with the O’Dowd family. Very sad news to hear of Damien’s passing. I remember great days in both the O’Dowd’s and our back-garden in Kilcloon Lawns playing football with Brian and Damien and my Dad. Damien had a great manner and had great time for everyone, ar dheis Dé go bhfuil a hanam uasal.
