Tributes are being paid to the late Jimmy Doyle who passed away yesterday.
 
A veteran of Thurles Sarsfields, he won six All-Ireland senior medals and seven National League league titles from 1957 to1973.
 
He is widely regarded as one of hurling’s greatest players of all-time earning a place on the Hurling team of the century and was part of the Millenium selection.

Among those paying tribute to him today was former County Board Chairman John Costigan, who extended his sympathies to Mr Doyle’s family, while saying that he will forever stand alongside the greats of GAA.
Environment Minster Alan Kelly and TD Michael Lowry have also spoken of Mr Doyle today.
Mr Kelly referred to him as ‘a genius on the hurling field and a gentleman off it’, while Michael Lowry called him ‘a true legend and an all-time great exponent of hurling’.
