Glenavon manager pays touching tribute to Mark Farren after Irish Cup win

Conan Doherty

A classy tribute for a classy man.

Glenavon never lost sight of the bigger picture on Saturday.

The club claimed a historic Irish Cup title after beating Linfield 2-0 and it was celebration time for Gary Hamilton and his men.

Not before they paused to remember Mark Farren.

The Irish football legend who played his last competitive football with Glenavon was there in spirit at Windsor Park as the club went on to clinch the title.

The players were draped in Mark Farren t-shirts after the game and manager Gary Hamilton dedicated the victory to the Inishowen native.

Mark’s wife Terri-Louise was there for the game too as she led the sides out for the decider.

And it’s not like he wasn’t being thought about in the stands either.

He’ll never be forgotten.
