Marcus Wilson,a former Dublin great has passed away.Ar dheis Dé go raibh a anam dílis.
Sorry to hear that. The Wilson name is synonymous with the revival of Dublin inter-county GAA
A lovely man. R.I.P.
A True Gentleman. Ar dheis Dé go raibh a Anam Dílis.
Only seen this now .I always remember him in flash Gordon ,the movie .
What age was he? A surviving member of the 50’s team.
Some man on stage & screen, incredible performance on FOTR
I remember watching him in the 50s when Vincents were more or less the Dublin team.One incident always stood out for me and that was a game against Mayo,who were a very strong team then,when he planted Langan.I aked him about that once when he was at a Setanta game in Ballymun and he just laughed and said the referee came over to him and said that "I know that you did it but I didn’t see it so I can’t do anything!His son Ciarán was an excellent hurler for Vincents.Marcus was a true gentleman.
Very few of that team left. I was in school with his son, cant for the life of me remember his name (could have been Mark). Jim Crowleys son Conor was in the class also.
Just heard that Jimmy Gray has passed away. 93

Aye - a legend of a man.
His book gives some flavour of his contribution to Dublin GAA in a lovely way - just really a series of fun and informative reminiscences.
Served Na Fianna, Dublin and Leinster GAA with great distinction.
A great man.
Condolences to his wife and family.
A very funny character, in my opinion.
Jaysus, thats shocking, very young and you would have thought healthy enough
A very compassionate man, too, towards people in need and to animals, especially dogs.
Had issues with his ticker. Was reading earlier where he had said in an interview that he was on something like 10 tablets a day
Very sad, he was really funny and a decent skin as well it seems.
He had a wicked sense of humour, particularly when appearing in drag
RIP Lily Savage
Quite the resemblance to our wee Daniel.
Jimmy Grey was a lovely man. I knew him since I was a child. We might have been on opposite sides of the fence but everyone had the greatest of respect for Jimmy. May he Rest in Peace.
Another colossus of Dublin GAA gone from us.
