Joe Carr RIP


Everybody at Dalymount Park and all within the Bohemian family wish to extend our deepest sympathies and condolences to the family and many friends of Joe Carr, a decades-long volunteer with our club, following his sad passing.

Stephen Burke writes:

Gentleman Joe.

Perhaps that’s where we should leave it, because that was our Joe, an absolute gentleman.

“The nicest man you could ever meet…” people only said that because it was true.

Jimmy O’Connor’s right-hand, whether it was the club’s Lotto and Football Forecast, the Half-Time Raffle, the Christmas Draw, and more. Result sheets, coupons, addressing envelopes, checking, counting, all the ‘glamorous’ behind-the-scenes work, it didn’t matter, Joe would be there, supporting, happy to help out.

A chat with Joe about Bohs, a bit of football history, his latest travels perhaps, whatever the topic, you were always the better after the conversation.

Friendly and cheerful, dependable, selfless, Joe’s list of good qualities was endless, and we hoped and prayed he was too.
But this sad day was coming. The loss of his programme collection due to a freak accident was a particularly hard blow, and the last year or two were tough ones for our dear friend.

We’ll miss him, oh how we’ll miss him, but we will remember him and smile every time we do at our good fortune of ever being in his company.
