Tipperary hurling star Dillon Quirke died last Friday “doing what he loved”, his funeral Mass has heard.
Quirke (24) who catapulted through the hurling ranks from underage to the Tipperary senior hurling team, died after he collapsed while captaining Clonoulty-Rossmore against Kilruane MacDonaghs, during a county senior hurling championship match at Semple Stadium, Thurles.
The village of Clonoulty came to a standstill on Tuesday as his remains were first driven by hearse from his home to his local GAA pitch before his coffin was shouldered almost 2km to St John the Baptist Church, as it passed hundreds of silent mourners who lined the route.
Members of the Tipperary County Board, along with president of the GAA Larry McCarthy, led the cortege to the church where local hurling and camogie players, as well as Quirke’s Tipperary team-mates, formed guards of honour.
