Tipperary have paid tribute to five-time All-Ireland SHC winner Theo English, who has passed away aged 90.

English is considered to be one of the county's finest ever players, operating in midfield through the 1950s and '60s, a period of rich success for the Premier. He won All-Irelands in '58, '61, '62, '64 and '65.

The Marlfield clubman also won eight National Hurling Leagues and seven Munster titles in a sparkling career.

"It was with deep sadness that we learned this morning of the passing of former Marlfield and Tipperary great Theo English," a Tipperary GAA statement read.

"Tipperary GAA extends our sincere sympathies to Theo's wife Maureen and his family at this very sad time. May he Rest In Peace."
