And today, joining the underground .....

Farewell Cyrille Regis, you'll not know this but I played a round of golf in a charity event with your cousin John the sprinter many years ago. Boys oh but you had some power in yer boots and had too much class for the racists. Respect.

A sad day for those of us infatuated by Dolores O'Riordan for many years, my son met her at a gig in Belfast during his teens, said she was lovely, no airs and graces. Sadly she will no longer linger.

Too young the pair of em.

Big Cyrille, a class act on and off the pitch.

Had tickets to see Belly and the Cranberries in the 90s but couldn't go cos I broke my leg playing footy a few days before.

I finally got to see them at an Irish music festival in London many years later. The weather was awful and I was having a really miserable time for various reasons.

As soon as Linger started, the sun came out for the only time that day.

Not nearly as famous as the others mentioned but a sad one all the same.

Simon Priestley from here, Campbell College old boy, died playing rugby over in England.

I'd say there are a few on here may have schooled with him.

A right shock to hear about Dolores O'Riordan. Jaysus I remember one of their first public appearances here in Limerick. She was only a few years older than me. Terrible stuff.
