The death has taken place of Derry football legend Seamus Lagan.

The towering Glen man first came to prominence as an outstanding centre half forward on the St. Columb's team that won the Hogan Cup in 1965. He also won an All-Ireland MFC medal with Derry in the same year and went on to score 0-6 for the Oak Leafers in their 1968 All-Ireland U21FC final victory over Offaly.

A wonderful fielder of the ball, Seamus was part of Derry's 1975 and '76 Ulster SFC winning teams and will be remembered for the 'disallowed' point he scored in the last minute of the 1970 NFL semi-final against Mayo.
