THE INTERMEDIATE Football Championship quarter-final between Cloughaneely and Naomh Colmcille has been called off, it has been confirmed.
The game has been postponed as a mark of respect to the late Paul ‘Diddler’ Dillon.
A former player and underage coach with Naomh Colmcille, the 45-year-old passed away yesterday evening following a battle with Motor Neurone Disease.
After the rebirth of the club in the mid-1990s, Paul was a long-time underage coach at Pairc Colmcille and many of the current senior team played under his tutelage.
“As a mark of respect to the Dillon family and with everyone’s mind anywhere but football at this time our championship 1/4 final v Cloughaneely is off tomorrow,” Naomh Colmcille confirmed.
“Alternative arrangements will be posted when we know the details.”
