Liam Cahill aka An Fear Rua.

RIP
Very sad.
Late 50s/early 60s I;d have guessed. Had he been ill?

Was 72 according to this post on his blog, which I found earlier today
https://liamcahill.wordpress.com/2022/05/07/thoughts-on-a-birth-date/
He was active on his blog and on Twitter until recently. The obit posted by Gav Reilly references suddenly at home

RIP Liam Cahill.
He might have had a few jousts with us over the years but he was an entertaining character too.
He put a lot of time and effort into An Fear Rua and it was one of the earliest GAA websites of the digital age.

Ah that's sad - one of the online pioneers for GAA

RIP Liam, was one great hurling forums and more, the one about Charolais cattle was the stuff of legend and even prompted some cattle breeders association or other to complain about it..

Limousins, I believe

(edit: Will post a link to it in the AFR thread in GAA section)

Sad to see the death of musician Dennis Cahill. A brilliant guitar player who was accompanist to fiddle player Martin Hayes. Only 68.

RIP Dennis

Very sad news.
His version of Jer the Rigger with Martin Hayes was timeless.

former Garrycastle defender and All-Ireland U21FC medallist Enda Mulvihill has passed away at the age of just 43.

The father-of-two, who had been battling illness, was part of Garrycastle's golden generation of footballers who dominated the Westmeath club scene throughout the noughties and came within a whisker of winning an All-Ireland club SFC title in 2011 when they were beaten by Crossmaglen after a replay. Enda's honours included six Westmeath SFC medals, one Leinster club SFC medal, county IFC, MFC and U21FC medals as well as All-County League and Feis Cup mementos.

He was also a member of Westmeath's 1999 All-Ireland U21 winning panel, but surprisingly didn't play senior for his county after that.
Is the ref going to finally blow his whistle?... No, he's going to blow his nose
