    Yeah only found out this morning from seeing diff papers. RIP Johnny. He had a brief spell with us in our first season in loi in 84-85 season. He has the most loi winners medals of all time with 7 along with a few others. He won them when he was with Waterford(6) and Limerick Utd. He also played with Cork City and Newcastlewest and quit playing at age 41. He was a ref till recently and also managed Waterford Utd to promotion in 89-90 season.

    He was a true legend. He is in top 10 of goalscorer in League of Ireland history. He was only joining Waterford for a 6 week loan spell from Coventry but never went home and was a main player in the glory days of 60s and 70s for Waterford before I was born.
    He was a lively character who was often on local radio and reffed at Junior League games until recently.

    One of his magic moments, scoring against reigning European champs Man Utd at a jam packed Lansdowne rd in the 1st leg of the European cup 1st round.

    Yeah nice tribute to him in the Sun today. He won the LOi and FAI Cup with Cork Hibs and the FAI Cup with Home Farm a few short years later.
