It’s now been confirmed that the young man who tragically lost his life in that road traffic accident near Ballinrobe last night was former Mayo minor star Darragh Doherty from Kilmaine. Darragh was corner-forward on the team that claimed the Tom Markham Cup in 2013 and he lit up that All-Ireland winning campaign with a number of sparkling performances, not least in the final itself where he shot 1-2 from play.
Darragh’s passing was confirmed a short time ago on Facebook by Kilmaine GAA club – here. Profound condolences to his family and friends on what is a truly shocking and untimely loss. RIP.
