Tributes pour in for Ex-Rovers chairman
Tributes have poured in for former Shamrock Rovers chairman Joe Colwell, who passed away on Christmas Day.
The Dubliner enjoyed a long playing career in the League of Ireland with Drumcondra and went on to have a successful association with the Hoops.
He played a key role in bringing the club to Tallaght, having joined the board in 1988, progressing to the role of chairman in the 1990s.
His son Jason had a six-year spell with Rovers as a player and remains involved with the club's development academy.
