Tributes have poured in for well-known Limerick supporter John Hunt, who has passed away aged 98.

Hunt was at Croke Park in 1936 when the Treaty beat Kilkenny in the All-Ireland SHC final by 5-06 to 1-05 and travelled back from Chicago, where he lived for over 70 years, to see them lift the big one last summer when John Kiely's men defeated Galway.

He made a memorable appearance on The Late Late Show when he fulfilled a lifelong ambition by lifting the Liam MacCarthy Cup.

"If St Peter gets me at the gate I couldn't be happier now they've won that cup," he said.

Ar dheis Dé go raibh a h'anam.
