TIPPERARY GAA IS mourning the loss of one of the county’s all-time greats following the death of hurling legend Theo English aged 90.

English won five senior All-Ireland hurling titles with the Premier in the 1950s and 1960s.

“It was with deep sadness that we learned this morning of the passing of former Marlfield and Tipperary great Theo English,” the Tipp county board confirmed on Sunday.

“Tipperary GAA extends our sincere sympathies to Theo’s wife Maureen and his family at this very sad time.

“May he Rest In Peace.”
