The late Páidí Ó Sé
The death has occurred of the former Westmeath football manager, Páidí Ó Sé.
Mr Ó Sé, who was found dead suddenly at his home at Ventry in Kerry, was just 57, and is understood to have died from a suspected heart attack.
From 2003, Mr Ó Sé was named as Westmeath's senior football team manager, and he steered Westmeath to its first ever Leinster Championship title in 2004, remaining at the helm of the county team until July 2005.
He was a popular man, and is death has caused shock well beyond the footballing community in Westmeath and his native Kerry, where he also had a public house.
Why not share with us your memories of Páidí, and that glorious 2004 campaign?
