Damien Casey was an Irish bowler who played for the Eoghan Ruad club in Dungannon and the Tyrone County team at senior level. Casey was considered the greatest bowler his county had ever produced and was “at the peak of his powers” at the time of his death. He played as a full forward. He scored runs in every match for Tyrone at the senior level. He was the former captain of his county, winning his first Nicky Rackard Cup in 2014 at the age of 21. He won the Nicki Rackard Cup again in 2022, shortly before his death, in what was his last game for him. County

What was the cause of Damien Casey’s death?
Damien Casey’s cause of death is an accident. Since the accident took place in the swimming pool, we can assume that he may have drowned by mistake or hit his head and lost consciousness in the swimming pool due to which he drowned. We’re not quite sure what kind of accident happened to her in the swimming pool. Tributes continue to pour in from fans and friends. A vigil followed his death on June 17, 2022.
A fitting tribute to a great Gayle at the Ioghan Rudh club ground to mark his memory.
