A NEW illustrated book about the late, great Derry City FC captain Ryan McBride will be launched today.
Ryan tragically died at his Brandywell home in March 2017.
He was aged just 27.
His death stunned the club and the city, as well as the wider sporting world throughout Ireland and further afield with ex-footballers Gary Linker, Robbie Fowler and Stan Collymore all paying their own personal tributes to Ryan.
Now, a new book has been created to help keep his legacy alive.
The publication, which is called ‘The Brandywell Boy’, is a joint initiative between Feile 2021 and the Bogside and Brandywell Health Forum.
The book has been illustrated by Anthony Cooley.
As part of A Day for Ryan McBride, the book will be launched at the Ryan McBride Brandywell Stadium this afternoon, Friday, August 13.
It will then be distributed to young people in the local area.
