League of Ireland players pay tribute to young Bohs fan who sadly passed away

The 'Ginger Mourinho' clearly had a positive impact on so many people.

Oran Tully passed away on Monday following after a battle with a rare bowel condition that he has had from an early age.


Tully, who lived in Skerries, was a die-hard Bohs fan, and travelled the country to watch them play.

League of Ireland players from a number of teams have paid tribute to the 'Ginger Mourinho', claiming he had a positive impact on everyone he met.




One of Tully's last tweets, before he passed, showed just how devout a Bohs fan he really was.

A number of League of Ireland fans are trying to organise a minute's applause at the 19th minute of every game this weekend, to celebrate the life of a proper football fan.

As well as Bohs, Tully loved Chelsea Football Club, who have since tweeted their sympathies.


Tully played for and coached with Skerries Football Club, who posted a lovely tribute on Monday morning, saying:

"It is with a heavy heart and deep deep sadness and tears, that we pass on the dreadful news of the passing of STFC player and coach Oran Tully late last night.

"Oran's love of football and infectious personality brightened up every Academy, camp or training session he was involved in, the kids simply loved him & truth be known, so did the adults.

"This is a truly sad day for our club and our deepest condolences & sympathies go to Martin, Clare, Dara, Conall and Orans family & friends.

"We will miss you wee man, rest in peace."
