As well as being a noted musician, writer, academic and producer in his own right, Marc Gegan devoted much of his considerable energy and imagination to the creation of platforms and opportunities for other artists to share their work with the public, the Donegal Bay Film Festival event curated by Marc being a typical case in point. Marc has made an enormous contribution to the cultural life of his native county and will be sorely missed by all who knew him and were touched by his talents and generosity of spirit.  Ar dheis Dé go raibh a anam.
