Barry Butler, a stalwart in Harry McNally’s side of the 1980s and early 1990s has sadly passed away at the age of 62 after a long struggle with dementia.

Popular with his team mates, it took time for him to win over the supporters, but his wholehearted approach was gradually recognised and he turned into a cult hero during his later years at the club.
