He was living and working as a doctor in New York but still fogged out for Mayo so had to fly over for matches etc.

I think Prendergast is the last one left

I logged on here fully expecting some gobshite to have made a crude attempt at humour to answer that question. Not often you get to say it on here but fair play for a classy way to ask a question a lot of people outside of Mayo would be interested in knowing the answer to.

 I’m sure these lads (Carney, Prendergast et al) weren’t happy when this curse craic gained popularity about 10 years ago


RIP to a true Mayo legend, it must have been a mad journey in those days.

Very sorry to hear this. A name synonymous with the Civil Rights movement. The fact that he was from a working class Protestant background significantly increased the personal risk of violence that he was open to. He therefore was willing to put his head above the parapet for others.

Rest In Peace.

Them DUP friggers are bitter. Driving home yesterday and one of them was being interviewed on radio six counties (cant remember the name of the p***k) but he had to make the point 3 times that Ivan turned his back on the unionist people when he got involved with the civil rights movement. The man was trying to help both sides of the community but these pricks refuse to see that.

William something or other, I heard it myself and thought the same thing.

It just re-enforced their mindset that any sop to a Catholic was at the expense of a protestant.

The lack of condolences from DUP / UUP since his passing tells it's own story

Sure the Civil Rights Movement was led by the IRA, don’t ya know. That shite was spouted by Paisley and it stuck, and many unionists still have that view of the CRM.

The CRM message would have let the cat out of the bag to the wider world that Catholics had been tramped into the ground for decades. So Paisley adds the IRA into the mix, which discredits anything they said or stood for.

Sad to hear about Cooper. It’s a pity there aren’t more figures about like him with a bit of common sense and guts. All we have today are the useless, self-serving, gutless parasites in politics now.
