League of Ireland community in mourning after the death of Cabinteely kitman Michael 'Locker' Davis
The League of Ireland community is in mourning following the death of popular Cabinteely kitman Michael 'Locker' Davis after a battle with illness.
Davis was a well-known figure within the game and had a long connection with Cabinteely boss Pat Devlin.
He passed away in the early hours of this morning, three days ahead of a testimonial that is being staged in his honour.
A host of past and present players are due to take the field in Stradbrook this Sunday to raise funds for his family.
