A young Gaelic Athletic Association (GAA) player from Tyrone, named Matty McGuigan, has sadly passed away, just days after relocating to Australia, reports Independent.
He fell ill over the weekend and could not recover.
Matty McGuigan was in his 20s and a former captain of Kildress Wolfe Tones.
He hailed from Cookstown and had attended Holy Trinity College in the same town. Matty had moved to Australia recently with his partner Clodagh, reports Independent.
In the past, he was also part of the Tyrone minor squad.
The Tyrone GAA has paid tribute to him, describing Matty McGuigan as one of the county’s most outstanding forwards, reports Independent.
His brother, Darragh, shared a tribute to him on social media.
“Forever young, love you forever. Very grateful to have you as a brother for 27 years of my life, don’t know how this has happened or why – I’ll never understand,” reports Independent.
