RIP Tony. A true legend of the game. Warrior. Sad sad day for Galway and hurling will be a lot poorer for him not being around.

RIP Tony Keady. All time great. Thoughts and prayers with your family and friends.

Tony's early departure reminds me of a line from a poem written after Christy Ring died 'ba mhór an peaca é
an fear san a adhlacadh'.
