I met Gerry while working for Langan Engineering in 1992. His wry sense of humor and Scorpio grit and determination made me a big admirer of Gerry. We reconnected briefly in 2016 when he was deciding to start his own company. He will be missed. My condolences to the McDonnell family.
Paul Millett, Boston, MA
Sincere condolences to the McDonnell family and Kerry on Gerry's passing. I knew Gerry from the Castlebar chess club days back in the 1976-86 era and he was always a gentle and kind person, and excellent chess player who dominated the Connaught chess tournaments. I also met him back in Boston around 1989 as we were both civil engineers. He was always courteous, kind and helpful. May he rest in peace.

So sad to hear of Gerry’s passing. We’d enjoyed many a tussle over the chess board in years gone by (he usually won with ease!) and he was the role model that us younger players aspired to. He was generous with his advice and guidance (usually given with a touch of humour) and always wanted us to be the best we could be. Sincere sympathy to his mum, Kerry and rest of family. May he rest in peace.
