Anthony Connolly RIP

Sligo Rovers were extremely saddened to learn of the passing of Anthony Connolly earlier this week.

Anthony was a beloved member of the sporting community in Sligo.

His warm sense of humour, contagious laughter and sense of fun made him a popular figure at our matches, those of Sligo GAA and any sporting occasion in the area.

Anthony was also a keen photographer, capturing countless Rovers games over the years.

We extend our sympathy to his family, his friends and the hundreds of people who encountered Anthony in his life, particularly in Riverstown, an area in which he took great pride and was a huge part of.

As well as a photo of Anthony, we also attach a photo he took of Sligo Rovers supporters in Slovakia a decade ago.

We will remember him at Saturday’s home game against Drogheda United, kick-off 6pm.

May he Rest in Peace.
