Paddy Hartnett RIP

Tributes have been paid to a Cork GAA supporter who died in a road accident on Monday.

Twenty-two-year-old Paddy Hartnett was involved in a fatal road collision outside Ballylanders on the Cork-Limerick border. Paddy’s passing has been greeted with shock and sadness locally, with his club Kildorrery describing him on social media as someone who was ‘liked by all’.

“It is with great sadness and shock we learn today of the sudden death of our dear club member, player and friend Paddy Hartnett. Paddy will be sorely missed by all that knew him,” the North Cork club said.

"And over the course of the next few days, we will remember and commemorate him for the lovely friendly presence he was.

"From his playing days to helping at Cúl Camp he was liked by all. Our thoughts are with Martin, Helen, Eoin, Harry and the late Jack along with all his friends and family at this sad time.

"All club activity will be suspended this week. Guard of honour and funeral arrangements to follow. Ar dheis Dé go raibh a anam."
