Uachtarán CLG John Horan has extended the sympathies of the Association to the family of the late Cork and Aghada footballer Kieran O'Connor after the 2010 All-Ireland medal winner passed away on Wednesday.

He said: "The determination and tenacity that were the hallmarks of his performances on the field of play were put to good use in Kieran's courageous battle with illness.

"The reaction to this sad news of not only his former teammates, but also opposition players from his distinguished career says so much about the respect in which he was held.

"I've no doubt his impact will ensure that his memory lives on at club and county level and our deepest sympathies go to Kieran’s wife Sinéad, their three children, Isabelle, Ava and James, his parents Pat and Mary, sister Aisling and brothers Patrick and John Paul and to his colleagues with Aghada and Cork for their loss."
