That’s really sad, he was only 46, far too young. I didn’t know Declan in person but chatted with him here and on FB regularly and always found him a great chap with a good sense of humour, we had many collecting interests in common and I enjoyed reading his posts. May the Force be with you mate, I’ll miss you.

Was really saddened this week to see this on Facebook.

When we first started the SWFUK Podcast up he was a huge supporter and use to send some very kind messages. He was an absolute gent and a Star Wars fanatic. Another good guy that has been taken way before his time, they say that the good always die young and this is a fine example.

R.I.P. Declan, may the force be with you!
