Sad news reaching Cork and Ireland today on the passing of legendary Irish Sports journalist Pat McAuliffe.
Pat was one of the key figures in Irish sports covering Football, GAA, Basketball and many other sports across the country for many years.
SportsMatters Owner Jerry Coughlan said on Twitter – Gutted to hear about the passing of Pat McAuliffe. I had the honour sitting besides Pat on a number of occassions in the media box at Turners Cross over the last few years. Easily one of the best journalists in the country by a mile. Sad day for Irish Sport. #PatMcauliffe
You will be missed Pat. Thank you for all your hard working covering Irish Sports over a glorious career.
