The Funeral is taking place of Westport United stalwart Aiden King.

The Westport United club man was involved as a player, committee member, volunteer, coach, supporter, President and Vice President at the club over many decades.

He got involved as a young boy on Castlebar Street, where he was born and reared back in 1938.

He had family connections to the club which helped him develop and nurture his unconditional love and affection for the Red and Black.

As a player, he represented the club in the late 1950s to early 1960s.

As a coach, Aiden was manager with Noel Duffy of the Junior team back in the early 1980’s, winning Mayo Leagues and reaching the last 16 of the FAI Junior Cup back in 1984.
