  • Tributes have been paid following the death of Packie McGarty, who's widely acknowledged as Leitrim's greatest-ever footballer.

    Mr McGarty, a native of Mohill, made his debut for Leitrim as a 16-year old, and had a 23-year career with his county, as well as winning Railway Cup honours with Connacht.

    He played six Connacht finals in his time with Leitrim that spanned four decades, from 1949 and 1971.

    Packie McGarty moved to England where he worked on building sites and with London Transport but continued to travel home to play for Leitrim, as well as playing for the Tara club in London.He moved back to Ireland in 1964 and opened a grocery shop in Clondalkin in Dublin which he operated until he retired in 1998.He also played for the Seam McDermotts and Round Towers clubs after moving to Dublin, and continued to have a keen interest in Leitrim GAA throughout his life.

    He passed away at his home in Terenure yesterday at the age of 87, and his Funeral Mass takes place in Templeogue tomorrow morning at 10am, in accordance with Covid-19 restrictions.

    Packie was the only Leitrim player selected on the Connacht Team of the Millennium, and has been described as " a superstar of his time" by Stephen Flynn, secretary of Mohill GAA.

    In a tribute, Leitrim GAA described Packie McGarty as "not only one of the greatest Leitrim footballers to put on a county jersey, but one of the greatest footballers of all time".
