Cork footballing legend and former Manchester United manager Frank O'Farell has died at the age of 94.
The Irish Examiner are reporting that the former Irish international who made 9 appearances for his country has passed away.
In his playing career, he had spells at West Ham, Preston North End and Cork United.
At 94, the Corkman was the oldest living former West Ham player.
Before Brendan Rodgers, O’Farrell was the last Irishman to lead a team to the FA Cup final - with Leicester in 1969.
He was selected by Matt Busby to take over at Old Trafford in 1971 but was sacked after 18 months in the role.
He would go on to manage Iran, and is the only Irish manager to have won international trophies, leading them to the Asian Cup and Asian Games titles.
