Former Ireland and Leinster centre Kevin Flynn has died aged 82.

Having made his debut in a 9-5 victory against France at Lansdowne Road in 1959, Flynn went on to win 22 caps for Ireland in three different decades.

He scored five tries, including a memorable effort against England at Twickenham back in 1972.

Ireland missed out on a shot at the Grand Slam that year because Scotland and Wales would not travel to these shores due to the Troubles.

In 2014 he was inducted into Leinster's hall of fame, while he also served as president of his club Wanderers FC. Wanderers confirmed his passing in a brief statement released on Monday night.
