This is the tragedy I referred to on the Sean Quinn thread. Mick won an All-Ireland medal for Mayo in 1985 and Captained an U-21 team I played on. He played for many years for the Mitchels mainly at Intermediate. He was a sound man and his passing was a huge shock.

RIP.

Brought the Tom Markham Cup into St. Geralds in 1985. Was a big deal then and I'm sure it would be a big deal today.

RIP

A sad story, may he RIP.

And another reminder that mental health issues need to be spoken about openly, and not in the hushed tones that are still commonplace.
Hasta la victoria siempre
