Former Armagh player Mickey McDonald. A magnificant athlete and sportsman.

Was very sorry to hear about Mickey. Fond memories of him and Johnny Corvan terrorising defences back in the early eighties. I was sat right behind Mickey in 1982 when he took the sideline kick in Ballybofey and scored a point, very late in the game, to win the match for Armagh. Although a first-round match, that game was effectively that year's Ulster Final.

Wilko Johnson.

And very sorry to hear this. An absolute legend of the punk and post punk era. Any excuse to play this absolutely blinding performance by Dr Feelgood on the Old Grey Whistle Test.

R I.P. Sean.
A man to whom the title FŪor Gael could be rightfully applied.

RIP Sean. I remember him giving a speech in the Harps Social Club in Armagh when he was President, a fantastic & passionate Orator, the hairs were standing on the back of my neck listening to him.

Awful  :( Seems to have hit people with higher profile so getting much more coverage which is great to see. Kevin Sinfield is getting some coverage for it. I suppose anto finnegan more locally increased the coverage of it here. RIP.

Rob Burrows is the rugby league player. Kevin Sinfield is doing the running to raise funds.

Doddie Weir was at the Scotland-NZ match a few weeks ago and looked like he was in the final throes of his life. What an absolutely horrible bastard of a disease. RIP.
