Irish footballs all time leading international goalscorer, Robbie Keane has posted an emotional video tribute to Drogheda man, Pat O’Brien, the father of NEFL referee Keith, who passed away this week.

Pats son, Chris, who also spent time refereeing in the local leagues, told Meath Live, ‘The video would have meant a lot to my dad as he was fanatical Spurs supporter, I’m not sure how Robbie got to hear about it but it was a really lovely gesture from him.’

In the 27  second clip on Facebook, Keane says, ‘I’m told Pat was a massive Spurs fan and also a fan of mine, I’m thinking of you all at this time, take care of yourselves and look after yourselves.’
