The death of former Republic of Ireland soccer international Liam Miller from cancer at the age of 36 has caused widespread shock and sadness.

The father-of-three was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer in November and, after receiving treatment in the US, where he was playing, he returned home to his native Cork to start chemotherapy.

The classy midfielder played for Celtic, Manchester United, Leeds United, Sunderland, QPR, Hibernian and Cork City during a successful career, and was also capped 21 times for his country between 2004 and '09.

He actually began his sporting career with his local GAA club Eire Og in Ovens, who were among those to offer their condolences to his family on social media last night.
