    Ennio Morricone has passed away aged 91 after a fall. I'd wondered why I was hearing the music from the Mission so much this morning.

    20 years ago today, motorcycle road racer Joey Dunlop was killed during a race in Estonia. I went to the funeral but the crowd was so massive that I never got near the church. The record for Isle of Man TT wins is still his.

    Paddy Fenning, the Offaly Footballer has died from Motor Neuron Disease. He was 69, RIP.

    His goal, shortly after halftime, in the All-Ireland Football Final replay of 1972 turned the game and Offaly won by nine points. He came on as a sub in the previous year's final which Offaly also won.
