Tipperary All-Ireland-winning hurler Tom Larkin has passed away.

He was part of the Premier team that lifted the Liam MacCarthy Cup in 1958, thanks to a 4-09 to 2-05 victory over Galway.

Larkin, born in 1931, was also a talented footballer, representing Tipp's seniors and coaching his native Kilsheelan-Kilcash to county football titles in 1968 and 1972.  

His club described him as "a star in every sense of the word".

"His homecoming as an All-Ireland medal winner... was one of the greatest events the parish has ever seen and the celebration that took place is part of the folklore of the area," Kilsheelan-Kilcash posted in a tribute on Facebook.

"Tom was a star at club level in every sense of the word. His role as team trainer with many club teams over the years was highly successful. His contribution as a team trainer was recognised and hugely appreciated by all the players of that era."
