Tipperary mourns the passing of hurling legend Jimmy Doyle

Thurles town stood still and in silence as the late, great Thurles Sarsfields and Tipperary hurling legend Jimmy Doyle was mourned.

They came from all over the country to pay their respects to a man whose silken skills, artistry and gifts reached into the hearts of so many who saw him play, the thousands who wondered at his magnificence, and those too who simply knew him as Jimmy - neighbour, colleague, friend.

See next week’s Tipperary Star, out Wednesday 1st July, for full coverage of Jimmy’s removal.
