RIP Paddy Conlon

It is with great sadness that Sligo Rovers learned of the passing of former player Private Paddy Conlon following a tragic accident earlier this week.

Paddy, who was 32, played for the club in 1999.

It continued a family tradition as Conlon’s father Christy played for Sligo Rovers in the 1970’s and one of his brothers Michael also played for the club at under-age level.

He enjoyed a distinguished junior soccer career winning numerous local and provincial honours with both Abbey United and then City United. He also represented Ireland at junior level and played for the Irish Defence Forces side and was a regular for both the Sligo-Leitrim Oscar Traynor team and the Connacht Inter-Provincial side.

All associated with Sligo Rovers would like to extend their deepest sympathies to his parents Christy and Heather, his brothers Michael and Daragh and his partner Louise. The burial details are as follows:

Mass of the resurrection at 11.30am on Saturday in the Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception, Sligo.  Burial follows in Sligo Cemetery.

May he Rest in Peace.
