Aghada GAA today retired the number 4 jersey as a touching mark of respect to their late clubman Kieran O'Connor.

The former Cork footballer and 2010 All-Ireland SFC winner, 41, who sadly passed away earlier this month after a three-year battle with cancer, proudly donned the green and white of his beloved Aghada during a distinguished playing career.

Ahead of this evening's Cork IFC first round clash against Castletownbere, Aghada GAA remembered Kieran by placing the number 4 jersey, which he wore for both club and county, on the sideline for the duration of the game.

Kieran was also listed on the teamsheet as left corner back Kyle O'Shea wore the number 17 jersey instead.
