Fianna Fáil Leader Micheál Martin has offered his condolences to the family of Páidí Ó Sé following the sudden passing of the former Kerry footballer.
Deputy Martin said: “This is a huge loss for Páidí’s family and friends in Kerry, Clare and across the country. He was a giant of the GAA and a gentleman to know.
“When it came to football Páidí had an extraordinary talent. I personally have great memories of stirring Cork – Kerry clashes through the years. He was an iconic figure and he personified that spirit of competitive rivalry that is the hallmark of the GAA.
“Páidí was also a very warm hearted person and he made enduring friendships in sport, politics and business.
“I want to offer my deepest condolences to Páidí’s wife Maire, and their three children, Neasa, Siún and Padraig Og at this very sad and difficult time for them.”
“He was a proud Corca Dhuibhne man.
“Ní bheidh a leithéid arís ann.”
