Former All-Ireland camogie winner with Dublin Betty 'Gerry' Hughes has passed away.

She made her inter-county debut in Blue in 1954 against Antrim and played up until 1963.

In those ten seasons Hughes, originally from Inchicore, won nine All-Ireland titles, including twice as captain in 1961 and 1962.

That team representing the capital eventually did 10-in-a-row in 1966.

Dublin Camogie said in a statement: "The death has taken place of former Dublin camogie great Betty Hughes. Gerry played with the great C.I.E Club that were based in Inchicore.

"She was always known as Gerry. Gerry played in the golden era of Dublin camogie and completed her career with nine senior All-Ireland medals. The great hearted defender made her debut against Antrim in 1954. She captained her side twice in 1961 and in 1962.

"She is always remembered for a wonderful sporting gesture in 1961 when as captain of the winning All-Ireland side she handed the O'Duffy Cup to the legendary Kay Mills as Kay was picking up her 15th Senior All-Ireland medal that day and it was widely known it was Kay's final game."
