    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.

    Former Cobh Ramblers manager Liam McMahon passed away this morning. Devastated to hear, a really nice man as well.

    RiP Mr McMahon. It is sad that this off season has seen this condolances thread as the busiest. Some great League of Ireland have been lost to us.

    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.
