I never knew of Jim Stynes until his passing. Being a Dublin man myself, it filled me with an incredable sense of pride to see that a guy from such hubble beginnings could go on to achieve so much. I became aware of his footballing legacy & of his work off the pitch. He was obviously a true great of Aussie Rules Football & an absolute hero of a man. I also see that the work he done gave hope to so many people. His story will live forever RIP Jim Stynes. A Dublin / Melbourne Legend..

Dear Jimmy, I never met you but that was my loss .... I wish I could have had a friend like you in my life.....you were an inspiration and you are what legends are made of .....the world is filled with such evil and mean spiritedness and yet amongst it there was the rareness of such a beautiful soul as yours ...how can there be good and evil in one world ....imagine if everyone's heart was as big as yours....we can only dream... I wish you could have lived longer for your sake and that of your family but also for all the good which is still to be done and for all the lives still to be touched and for all the young people still to be moved and encouraged and inspired and given hope...imagine how much more you could have done....but then you did so much already ....it would be for our own selfish reasons to have you keep going when you were so weary....yours is the greatest shame ....I am a W.C.E. fan but Melbourne will now be my second team and in memory of you I will always stop and remember you when I watch your team play ...RIP

It was a pleasure to have played on the same field as Jim with Ballyboden/ St. Endas and to have his dad, Brian as our coach....... Little did we know the enormity of greatness that was on our Ballyroan doorstep! You've made us all very proud - thank you for the memories and condolences to all your family.
RIP Jim Stynes - your likes will never be seen again!

I knew Brian (Jims father) when I was a young lad in Dublin and spent a lot of time with Brendan ( Brians brother) as we lived next door to each other in Homefarm Road, Drumcondra.
I was deeply saddened to learn of Jim's death after his long battle with Cancer. He made a tremendous contribution to Australian life and leaves a heritage of achievements in both Ireland and Australia!.
May I extend my sincere sympathy to Jim and his family.

Jim, although I did not know you personally, like so many others, I have been touched by your legacy. You will be remembered always, and your spirit will live on. You were a blessing to your adopted land; your family and many charities! You fought the good fight, & now it is time to rest in peace. Sincere condolences to your cherished family! RIP Jim Stynes

Such a sad time for all Australians. He touched so many people. In gods care with the rest of the Angels now. Please give my brother Joe a huge handshake and tell him I miss him dearly. Also taken before his time. Jim if u meet Joe you should start up your own football team. Joe was passionate for soccer just as u were with your football. Never forgotten. Forever in our hearts. We love u Jimmy.

Jim didn't know you but wish I had. Your beautiful children will carry on your life and goodness through their own journeys. You will make a lot of people re-evaluate their lives and what they need to do to be remembered as the honourable and thoroughly decent man you clearly were.
