Does anyone know what became of Captain TD McDermott (aka Mad Mac) and his wife Eileen (Mrs Mac)?

I think that sadly they are no longer with us, I recall reading a post on a thread regarding the Liparus some time ago with this news.
I sailed with both Mac & Eileen on his last trip as Master on said vessel.
Mac was determined to go out in style, which meant mass orders of wine when passing Cape Town for lunch time and huge midnight curry feasts in the bar with whatever he could lay his hands on.
On that trip we were waiting in a Saudi "holding anchorage" as XMAS Eve approached, with all the booze in bond Eileen was becoming rather frantic, having worked her way through Mac's stash of scotch. The Chief Eng offered to trade some of the engineer's stocks which were hidden in the back of the main panel in the control room, and was accused of profiteering when Mac was informed of the rate of exchange

I'm sorry to hear that. I sailed with them twice, and they were a remarkable couple. I think my favourite story was the time when they left their teenage son Peter at home while they were at sea. When they paid off and arrived home, they found a hole in the side of the house. apparently Peter had built a boat indoors and the only way he could get it out was to knock a hole in tne wall! It must have been in the genes!
