Conan Byrne Is Leaving St. Pat's And The Fans Are Getting Emotional

After almost six years with St. Patrick's Athletic, Conan Byrne has announced that he will be leaving the club after tomorrow's game against Derry City.

A central figure as Pat's laid claim to every domestic honour going, Byrne, who co-presents the Greatest League in the World podcast with Con Murphy, spoke openly about his time with the club, assuring fans that he now is "a Saints supporter for life."

One of the league's most recognisable names, Pat's were quick to thank Conan Byrne for all that he had done whilst playing with the club - this goal one of the moments few Pat's fans will forget in a hurry.
