Sincere sympathy to the Sweeney family on the sad passing of Martin. A true gentleman. Dedicated to his weather station recording our daily weather for more than 50 years. Martin was delighted to have his weather station automated in recent times. A man held in high esteem by Met Eireann because of his methodical recording of the weather over the decades. Martin shared his records with many college students over the years. REST IN PEACE MARTIN.

Michael Commins
Lonesome to hear of the passing of the "Quiet Man" from Straide. Martin was a man of great intellect and he faithfully filed daily weather reports for RTE from his "station" for more than five decades. I got to know him very well through our shared interest in shortwave radio and spent a good few pleasant visits in his home scanning the shortwave bands for remote stations. He was widely read and had an amazing knowledge of the geography of the world. He was perhaps the only person I know who was totally fascinated by places north of us ....and he visited Iceland (on a few occasions), the Scandinavian countries and right to the Russian border. The sunnier climes of the southern countries did not hold the same appeal for him at all. Martin was a real gentleman and he will be remembered with great fondness by all of us who knew him. Peace to his gentle soul.
