A Mayo Gaelic footballer from the 1950’s era has died in America.

Fr Jimmy O’Grady came on as a substitute for the county team in the 1955 All-Ireland SFC semi-final replay against Dublin.

He was captain of the St Nathy’s College team that was crowned Connacht Colleges’ junior football champions in 1951.

He also won county minor and junior football championship medals with Swinford.

A memorial Mass for Fr Jimmy will take place next week, while a Mass will be held in his native Killasser at a later date.
