The thoughts of everyone at Oriel Park are with the family of Roy Mackin, who sadly passed away on Monday.

A lifelong supporter of Dundalk Football Club, Roy was presented with a special jersey when he celebrated his 80th birthday earlier this year.

Roy travelled across Ireland and Europe to watch us play and was a trusted volunteer who happily gave up his free time to assist the club in many ways, selling the programme on match nights and helping with the club lotto amongst many other things.

He will be sorely missed at Oriel Park.

Details of Roy’s funeral will be announced on Wednesday afternoon.

Below are some of the tributes that were paid to a true gentleman.

Rest In Peace, Roy.
