    I knew Paddy, its been a while since I seen him though, he was a good lad, great craic and a great footballer.

    No more to the story than there is, he fell from a height.

    R.I.P Paddy, you will be missed.

    Just heard the late Pte. Conlon R.I.P. was to captain his Army soccer team (6 Inf Bn) today in Dublin.
    The President was to attend the match, which I believe went ahead despite the death of Pte. Conlon. (If this is true, it was a strange decision, but who am I to question it?)
    This young man served in Chad, Lebanon, Liberia and will be a sad loss to his family, his many friends and comrades.
    May he rest in peace.
