We are deeply saddened by the untimely death of our wonderful colleague Professor Raymond Gillespie on 8 February 2024. Raymond joined the Department of History in 1991. Having retired in 2021, he was awarded the title of Professor Emeritus at Maynooth University in January 2022 and continued to be an engaging, inspiring and entertaining colleague
An exceptionally eminent, generous and prolific scholar, Raymond was held in the highest regard by his peers. He was also an outstanding teacher, known for sharing his passion for history with colleagues and students.
Raymond will be very sadly missed, but leaves an enduring legacy. Our thoughts are with his wife Bernadette, family, friends, colleagues and former students at this sad time.
Ar dheis Dé go raibh a anam.
