Kerry GAA is in mourning following the death of DJ Crowley on Friday morning.

The Rathmore clubman played for Kerry during the 1960s and 70s, winning two All-Ireland titles and four Munster crowns in the space of four years.

He scored what was described as 'the goal of the century' in the Kingdom's 1970 All-Ireland final victory over Meath, while the previous year saw him give a 'Man of the Match' performance alongside the legendary Mick O'Connell in the decider against Offaly.

Crowley also won three National League medals with the Munster kingpins before being forced to retire due to injury, while at club level he earned three county senior titles with divisional side East Kerry in 1965, 1968 and 1969.
