Tributes were paid to a young GAA player in Co Tyrone who died suddenly.
Onor McCaughey played for Trillick St Macartans and helped the club secure the Tráth na gCeist Scór na nÓg district title.
“Our club is devastated by the sudden passing of one of our players, Conor McCaughey,” the club said in a statement on social media.
“Our sincerest and heartfelt thoughts and prayers are with Conor’s family, Dermot, Bernie, Michael, Caitríona, Diarmaid, Seán and Eoghan, his extended family and his large circle of friends.”
The GAA club said Conor was a valued player from a young age and has been involved in a number of recent underage championship and league successes.
“Last year Conor played a number of games on our reserve team,” the statement added.
“Conor also played a crucial role alongside his brother Eoghan in winning the district title Tráth na gCeist Scór na nÓg.
“As a club we will do our best to support the McCaughey family and Conor’s friends at this heartbreaking time.”
Out of respect, the GAA Club has canceled all activities until further notice.
“D’imigh tú i mbláth na hóige, ar Sholas na bhFlaitheas go raibh d’anam – You left in the prime of youth, may your soul be granted the light of heaven,” it added.
A funeral mass will be held at 11am on Friday at St Macartan’s Church in Trillick.
Conor is then buried in the adjacent cemetery.
