Absolutely terrible news, so many of the people associated with the club spoke highly of Dolan, he seemed like a very genuine bloke and his work with the academy can't be understated.

My thoughts are with his friends and family.

A huge part of this club and crucial to the development of so many first team players over the years. Very sad loss

Surely the club can do something, maybe in terms of naming something after him - to do with the academy etc

Logically the youth set up should become the Eamonn Dolan Academy
