Such sad news, an icon, a gentleman and going to the games wont be the same without seeing Tommy. He was there good times and bad, hail, rain, sunshine and snow. He had endless patience and time for generation after generation be they Dubs or from any other county. Delighted he got to see the historic year last year i know how much it meant to him.

RIP Tommy, will be remembered and revered wherever Blue is worn.

My late father won a county championship in the 50's. Amidst the usual craic afterwards someone described him as 'the best fullback in Ireland'. As a young lad might he didn't mind the compliment - but he said a few weeks later he saw Jimmy Lavin and that was the end of that.
