The death has occurred of Sean Clohessy who won All-Ireland SHC medals with Kilkenny in 1957 and '63.

The legendary Tullaroan midfielder followed in his father Pat's footsteps when he made his senior debut for the Cats in 1953. Both of his All-Ireland wins came at the expense of Waterford, while he also claimed five Leinster SHC medals, one National League medal and one Railway Cup medal in a glittering career.

Sean, who lived in Midleton, Co. Cork where he was married with five children, won a Kilkenny SHC medal in 1958 when Tullaroan defeated Bennettsbridge by 1-12 to 3-2 in the final. He captained his county to a Leinster SHC success the following year.
