Des McAleenan, RIP | OTB interview with the late Irish goalkeeping coach

Over the weekend, the sporting world had to absorb the news of the death of Des McAleenan. An Artane man, whose passion for coaching goalkeeping saw him cross continents, from Saudi Arabia to Colombia, via the United States.

He coached with New York Red Bulls, and counts David Ospina as one of his closest students. We were devastated to hear the news of a gentleman whose charm, wit, confidence and passion for the game touched both our radio and digital audiences.

Here is Des, for you to all enjoy.

Des McAleenan, rest in peace.
