    RIP John Kennedy (Cork City FC)

    Very sad news yesterday afternoon with the unexpected passing of John Kennedy. To most, he was the friendliest face at CCFC, the one who never left you down, ran the Family Enclosure, ran buses around the country, sat on our board, volunteered beyond human limits.
    I am sure many on here and around the league will have known him.
    Our club is devastated with John's sad loss.
    Rest easy, JFK.

    Its really hard to overstate how special JFK was. It goes beyond his work with the club. The world is a worse place today without him and it's hard to imagine all the outreach programs he ran being maintained to the same standard without him.
    He wasn't exactly a young man but his death is completely out of the blue so its that much harder to take.

    Had the privelege to know John quite well via the Irish Supporter Network. A brilliant guy- his work with the family section is a model for the whole league. Absolutely devastating news, a huge loss.
