How did Eoin Coss die?

Eoin Coss, a great Hoops fan from Mountmellick, Co. Laois has passed away. His team, Mountmellick Utd FC shared their tributes on their social media page and the message reads,

“At a time like this, words can appear hollow. No matter what is said, little comfort can come from them. This morning, one of our brightest young stars sadly slipped away after a battle so bravely borne. Surrounded by his adoring parents, Kevin and Martina, and his brothers who idolized him, Eoin Coss passed away peacefully at home. He was just 14 years of age.”

“Anyone who knew Eoin on or off the soccer pitch would have been in no way surprised by how he accepted his diagnosis less than a year ago and readied himself for the battle that lay ahead. Not once did the cheeky smile disappear from his face, his quick wit and charm remained firmly intact and his love of sports and just being out and about never once waned over the hugely challenging past twelve months.”

The team also shared his love for football and his football career in their tribute post.

“Eoin Coss leaves behind a legacy that belies his tender years, and while right now all we can feel is sadness at his untimely passing, we know that the mark he has made on all of us is indelible. He lives on in his teammates who were inspired by him, his friends who laughed with him, and his family who loved him, and always will. May his gentle soul rest in peace. 💙💛”

Eoin Coss cause of death:

Eoin Coss cause of death was cancer. The young football player, Eoin Coss from Mountmellick was diagnosed with rare cancer one year ago. He underwent intense care at Crumlin Children’s Hospital.

Eoin is such a wonderful and optimistic young man with a strong attitude. He fought his cancer battle with strength, courage, bravery, and the love of his family. Sadly, Eoin passed away on November 10, 2022.

The death statement shared by Mountmellick Utd FC describes Eoin as:

“It seems like a cliché but everyone associated with Eoin knew he was a kid destined for great things. He started his soccer journey with us as a 7-year-old at our academy and instantly showed what would make him stand out for the rest of his life. Considerably stronger than players his age, Eoin looked out of place amongst the others in the academy setup, but that was only a sign of things to come because, for the rest of his tragically short sporting career, he was always the one that stood out. He dominated games, taking them by the scruff of the neck and encouraging his teammates to do the same.

Nothing but his best was ever good enough, and it was that attitude and desire that saw Eoin captain every team he played on through the age groups and led to his selection on every region and league representative panel that was going.

As good as he was with his feet and his head, he was just as good with his heart. He was a humble winner and displayed sportsmanship and a sense of fair play that even the game’s most lauded global stars could learn a thing or two from. His dad Kevin was by his side for every step of his sporting journey, coaching teams that relied hugely on the input from their star man, his son Eoin.”

“An avid soccer fan, Eoin’s two main loves in the game where Liverpool and Shamrock Rovers. Any of Eoin’s managers and teammates will testify that Eoin had all the hallmarks of a player who could have gone on to don the famous green and white hoops of Rovers or even the all-red of Liverpool FC. We all know how good Eoin was and how great he would have been, but fate intervened, and unfortunately for us here at the club, for the wider sporting world, but most of all for his adoring family, we will never see this young superstar develop into the wonderful sportsman and even better man that he undoubtedly would have been.”
