Tributes Pour In From All Quarters As Derry City Captain Ryan McBride Tragically Passes

The Irish soccer community has been plunged into sadness as news has emerged that Derry City captain Ryan McBride has been found dead in his home aged just 27.

The Derry native, who made his debut for the club back in 2011, had featured in all of the club’s matches so far this season and was set to take his place in Derry’s defence against Limerick on Monday night.

According to the Derry Journal however, McBride was found dead in his bed on Sunday evening, with a cause of death yet to be determined.

Following news of McBride’s sudden passing, tributes began pouring in from across the stunned football community.

McBride’s passing is the third tragedy to befall Derry City in recent times. Last year striker Mark Farren succumbed to a brain tumour aged just 33, while Josh Daniels lost five members of his family in the Buncranna pier tragedy, also last year.

Derry City’s rescheduled Premier Division tie with Limerick has now been called off following news of McBride’s sudden death and the club is now faced with having to come to terms with yet more heartache as one of their own is taken so young.

Rest In Peace.
