    Jaysus. Usual stuff - knew he had his health issues, but did not expect this.

    RIP.

    Very sad, and to have seemed to be in remission too after the initial diagnosis though at least he got to play again for a while. At the time of the Kick for Mark fundraising his former teammates said that he had lost speech so he certainly battled hard. There but for the grace of god! RIP Mark.

    I'm quite shocked to hear this as I also didn't realise things were so bad for him. It doesn't seen that long ago his ex team mates were having bucket collections at LOI grounds for his treatment fund, I know it was well supported in Oriel Park and other grounds.

    What a player he was in his prime, a deadly striker with a very impressive goals per game ratio. Would have loved to have seen him playing for us. He will be looked back as having made a huge contribution to Irish Football.

    RIP Mark, this a very sad day for all his family and friends and in particular Derry City.

    This is very sad news, particularly for his family and friends. At his age he should have still been banging in goals at the top level.
    Rest in Peace.

    If you attack me with stupidity, I'll be forced to defend myself with sarcasm.
