    Robbie Brunton RIP

    Ex Bohs, Sligo, Derry, Monaghan and a few clubs in the Irish League.

    Had been ill since early summer.

    My memory of him is of a right tough lad who picked up plenty of cards, red and yellow, in his day.

    Very sad news, only 47.

    Played for us as well, in Europe too incidentally. Came in as a replacement for David Crawley after relegation, but he obviously came to us at a very bad time for the club.

    Sincere condolences to his family. RIP.

    RIP. Played two seasons I think with us and probably was one of the first names on team sheet each week.

    Condolences to the Braunton family. I remember him as an uncompromising hard player, especially in the Rovers Bohs battles. Very young age to be taken, its very sad indeed.

    I also recall him playing for Dundalk in FD, terrible season around 2003 I think.

    Decent player and gave it his all though I recall.

    RIP
    #DundalkFC 5 titles in 6 years 2014/2015/2016/2018/2019
