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.
This Limerick man, long emigrated to Chicago, is 98 years old. He saw the Treaty win the All-Ireland in 1936. He saw them win it at Croke Park in 2018. He had never held aloft Liam MacCarthy. Until now... #RTEgaa pic.twitter.com/WjNb42SPcZ— RTÉ GAA (@RTEgaa) September 7, 2018
