Offaly football supporters will be saddened to hear of the passing of former county footballer Mick Brady.

The Edenderry clubman was a regular on the Faithful County team from 1952 to 1964 and made 28 championship appearances.

He was a member of the ground breaking team that captured the county's first Leinster SFC title in 1960 at Louth's expense while he lined out at centre-back on the team that lost the 1961 Sam Maguire Cup decider to Down (2-8 to 3-6).

His son Peter followed in his footsteps as a member of the 1997 provincial winning Offaly team. Like his father Peter was a regular on Leinster Railway Cup teams.

Mick, who was chosen as left half back on the Offaly Team of the Century is survived by wife Bernie, family Michael Óg, Joe, Peter, Liz, Johnny and Mag and extended family.

Funeral arrangements: Reposing at Larkin's Funeral Home, Edenderry this (Tuesday) evening from 6.0 with Rosary at 9.0. Removal tomorrow (Wednesday) at 12.30, arriving to St. Mary's Church, Edenderry for 1.0. Funeral Mass followed by burial in St. Mary's Cemetery.
