Jimmy Coffey was a great favourite with the Drumcondra fans in the 1940s and 1950s.
A wing-half, he won a League of Ireland Championship medal in 1948/9 and a FAI Cup-winners medal in 1954.
He was capped for the Republic of Ireland in a World Cup Qualifier in Helsinki against Finland.
The match finished in a 1-1 draw and Coffey laid on the opening goal for Irish skipper Peter O'Farrell. He also represented the League of Ireland.
