The important role of centre vortices in dynamical chiral symmetry breaking and corresponding dynamical mass generation has been demonstrated in pure gauge studies of the Landau-gauge quark propagator. We present initial results of our investigation into the impact of centre vortex removal on the Landau-gauge propagator on dynamical gauge fields. To ensure sensitivity to the topology of the gauge fields, the propagator in computed with overlap fermions. Upon removal of centre vortices we find that dynamical mass generation is suppressed. The quark renormalisation function remains remarkably flat except in the deep infrared where it exhibits significant suppression. These effects become more prominent at lighter quark masses.
