Tributes to Tyrone’s greatest hurler have been pouring in following the tragic death of Damian Casey.

Damian died following an accident at a swimming pool in Spain, where he had travelled to attend the wedding of a friend.

Aside from his prodigious skills as an outstanding exponent of the ancient game, the 29-year-old was a cherished son and brother, and a true and loyal friend to many, all of whom have been numbed into disbelief at the devastating news of his untimely death.
