The death has taken place of Galway football legend Seamus Leydon.

The Dunmore MacHales man was part of the Galway three in a row team from 1964 to 1966.

He was a very stylish footballer with a fabulous left boot and was picked on the first ever All-Star team in 1971 at corner forward.

In 1999, Seamus was voted onto the Galway Team of the Millennium, a fitting reflection on one of the finest forwards ever to wear the maroon jersey.

He passed away last night at the age of 81.
