The family of Paul Butler have asked us to share a message to all of the Linfield and Irish League family who have sent messages of condolences and generously donated to the GoFundMe page.

The message reads:

“Just before this page closes we wanted to thank everyone who has contributed so generously to help Rachel and the children at this time, on this unimaginable loss. Many of you we don’t know and may never meet, others have donated anonymously, from the bottom of our hearts we say THANK YOU. Please continue to pray for us as a family as we try to navigate this journey without Paul. All our love from the Butler family.”

The Linfield Staff have also thanked the supporters following the support given throughout this time:

“We just want to thank you all for your love, kindness and generosity ❤️ x”
