I said that was a good idea and remember wondering why he didn't start it in the end. So I guess I'll start it now- use this thread to announce, pay tribute, remember, express condolences etc for Dunny and any other LOI people who pass away.
    terrible sad news. condolences to all those close to him. RIP

    Met Dunny (Aidan) at many a Dundalk match down through the years.I traveled with him to the Setanta Cup match at Windsor Park 2011 a game he particularly enjoyed.He simply loved Dundalk FC and the LOI.
    He will be sadly missed.
    RIP Dunny

    It's funny how familiar you become with forum usernames over the years, and how much of a jolt it is when the person behind it passes away, regardless of having never met or known them. RIP Dunny.

    The first ever full (non-caretaker) Irish senior manager to pass away. RIP.

    His wiki article is interesting -

    At the same time as managing Ireland, Tuohy was also managing Shamrock Rovers and was working as an area sales manager for HB Ice Cream. He was now the father of six children and financial pressures forced him to give up the Ireland job which only paid 500 a year
    After that, he managed Trinity College for six years.

    Also forced through moving Irish international matches to Wednesdays (instead of Sundays) so that English League players could play, brought Brian Kerr into LoI football and, in his last job as Ireland U-19 manager, was pushed aside by Jack Charlton very early on in Charlton's reign.

    As I said in the farewell thread, I wouldn't say Rasher was a boyhood hero (Frank O'Neill was the man!) but he was in the Rovers' team of the 1960s whom I had the pleasure of seeing win cup after cup. Really skillful and very hard. To coin a classic "he was a lot more deceptive than you might think he was".
    Forget about the performance or entertainment. It's only the result that matters.

    Milo Corcoran RIP

    Quote Originally Posted by FAI
    The Football Association of Ireland is saddened to learn of the passing of former President Michael 'Milo' Corcoran and expresses sympathies to his family.

    Elected FAI President in 2001, Milo held that position until 2005 - having previously served a five-year term as Vice President - and he proved to be a hugely popular figure in all circles of Irish football due to his unstinting loyalty to improving the game at every level.

    "In Milo Corcoran, we have lost one of Irish football's true gentlemen. It is with great sadness that I learned of his passing on Monday evening and my thoughts are with his family," said Tony Fitzgerald, FAI President.

    "Milo was someone who made a huge impact on so many levels to improve football in this country and his contribution is simply invaluable. From grassroots right up to being FAI President, he made a difference wherever he was and that will be his legacy.

    "He will be missed by anyone who knew him and Irish football will certainly be a little poorer without him around. May he rest in peace.

    "FAI CEO John Delaney paid tribute to Milo, saying that he made "an immeasurable contribution to the game" and had a huge impact on Irish football for many years.
    He said: "Milo was a great personal friend of mine, someone who I had the pleasure of knowing for more than 30 years, and someone who I was extremely close to.
    "He made an immeasurable contribution to the game and he is someone whose loss will be felt deeply in the world of football. The FAI will pay a number of tributes to Milo in the coming days and weeks, and we will miss him greatly. I want to pass on my deepest sympathies to his family and many friends in the game."

    Born in Dublin to Kilkenny parents, Milo grew up in County Waterford and quickly became a key figure in a local supporters club which sparked his passion to make a difference in shaping the future of the beautiful game.
    He was part of the current FAI Board and Chairman of the FAI International Committee, where he remained committed to raising the standards of football development throughout the country and worked closely with various departments along with Board and Council Members.

    Considered to be the main driving force behind the creation of the Setanta Sports Cup - a cross-border competition between League of Ireland and Irish League clubs - he served as the tournament's chairman from its inception in 2005.
    A strong supporter of domestic football, Milo was a regular at his beloved Waterford United, where he served a variety of roles including club chairman, and was the club's representative on the League Committee in the 1980s and 1990s. In recent years, he acted as one of the FAI's TV Liaison Officers.

    A member of the UEFA Youth & Amateur Football Committee, Milo carried a strong reputation with him wherever he travelled around the world due to his gregarious personality and love of football.
    He was a key figure in establishing the Football Village of Hope with the Department of Foreign Affairs, through the Irish Aid programme to assist integration between Palestinian and Israeli children through football.

    In his career outside of football, Milo worked as a sales representative for Heineken Ireland and he recently did some consultancy work with Renua Ireland.
    Milo passed away following illness and is survived by his beloved wife Marie, sons Alan and Evan.
