Augustine (Gusty) McCurdy passed away on Sunday 26th October 2014 after a short illness.
Gusty was a well known author and local historian. Born on Rathlin, he spent some of his teenage years in Belfast, and later went to England where he married and raised a family. Finally returning to Rathlin with his wife Judy and some of their children, he found more time to follow his life-long interest in Irish history and particularly Rathlin's history.
