Tributes have been paid to Mayo minor footballer Darragh Doherty who died in a single vehicle crash at Carrowmore near Ballinrobe on Sunday evening.

The 19-year-old was a Killmaine GAA clubman and a member of the All-Ireland Minor team of 2013 which brought the Tom Markham Cup to Mayo after a 28 year gap, scoring 1-02 in the final.

In a statement, his club said: "It is with profound sadness and shock that Kilmaine GAA announce the untimely passing of club player of Darragh Doherty, Ballyhenry, Kilmaine, Co.Mayo. Darragh was an outstanding footballer who bought honour and glory to club and county.

"Darragh was a winner, a leader, expecting the high standards of all those around him, that he delivered himself.

"Kilmaine GAA wishes to extend its sympathies to his parents Margaret and Tom, his brothers, Cathal, Adrian, David and Gerard and all of his extended family and friends."

Elsewhere, one of the three men killed in a road crash in Co Down yesterday afternoon was a footballer at Queens University in Belfast.

Peter Hughes, 19, from Dromintee in Armagh, was killed alongside 20-year-old Conall Havern from Newry.
