Daniel McDonnells article in August 2016 about that summers european odyssey features Jim Murphy as a starting point for the piece.

Totally gutted to hear of Jims passing. An amazing person in every sense. A gentleman, who's knowledge of the club we all love was second to none. Two fantastic books on our history, the second been a fundraiser for club while in dire need of funds. Having known Jim just to pass time of day and the odd word or two in Enda McGuill suite before and after matches, we became linked when Zoe Murphy (my niece and Jims great-niece) was born and in need of her fundraising. Through working on fundraising I got to know the great man and enjoyed many a Guinness in his great company in recent years. Jim of course came up with the fantastic history of DFC kits poster. The Enda suite and Oriel will be a completely different place without his wonderful presence.
Deepest and sincere condolences to Jims family and friends.

R.I.P. Jim

Well said Alan, what a man he was, and the legacy he has left, not just his two books, but his contribution to the club for decades.

He will be a notable loss indeed from the Enda McGuill lounge, always available for a chat. I think he was even on this forum?

Really sad news, what a character Jim was and a great servant of the club and of Irish football history.

The Sunday Independent published an obituary for Jim Murphy by Sean Ryan last Sunday that does not appear to have been posted here.

It's a fitting salute to a wonderful man

Horrible news of the passing of Harry Martin.

A gentleman who will be sorely missed on Away days. Followed Dundalk all over Ireland and abroad not just in the good times but also in the dark times of the First division.

Condolences to his family

Was very sorry to hear this, he was even at the game last night. He was some character, and a very passionate supporter, met him at a good few euro away games.

RIP and condolences to his family.

Very sorry to hear of Harry‘s sudden death. Saw him at last night’s match in Oriel. Harry was one of those supporters who followed Dundalk FC in the good times & the not so good. Whenever we met at games Harry would always talk about our old school days, May Harry Rest In Peace. My condolences to Harry’s family & many friends at this sad time.

Condolences to Mary O'Hanlon and all the family. A true Lilywhite was laid to rest yesterday.

I have known John since childhood - rarely does one meet such a generous, warm and beautiful man. His health may have prevented him from getting to Oriel Park so often as he wished in recent years, but his enthusiasm and excitement was a joy to share on those occasions
