The first stop for these new Sligo county champions was a visit to an old friend

31-year-old Gary Dillon passed away earlier this year.

AFTER CALRY/ST JOSEPH’S won the Sligo intermediate football championship yesterday, they knew where the first stop with the cup would be.

The team called into Scarden to visit former team-mate Gary Dillon who died in February.

Dillon featured in the Joe Brolly documentary this year after he befriended the RTÉ pundit, who donated a kidney to an ill neighbour.

“I’m sure Gar was cheering his heart out for ye on the sidelines as always,” the club’s Facebook page states. “Fair Play Lads.”
