“Supporters of Irish soccer, and in particular those who will have followed the team during the Charlton and McCarthy eras, will have been greatly saddened by the news of the death of former Republic of Ireland international Alan McLoughlin.

His passing at such an early age comes after a long battle with cancer.

Sabina and I send our deepest sympathies to his family and friends, and to all those who knew him as a player for both club and country.”
