Limerick supporter famous for John 3:7 sign at GAA games dies

Limerick super-fan Frank Hogan, famous for standing in terraces around the country with his John 3:7 sign, died, the Limerick Leader has reported.

The Tipperary man lived in Limerick city and was well-known to supporters all over the country for attending games with his big yellow sign.

John 3:7 reads: “Do not marvel that I said to you, you must be born again”.

In early years the Christian evangelist had a sign that read John 3:16, the bible verse that states: "For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life."

His funeral will take place in Limerick tomorrow.
