Tributes have been paid following the death of Galway’s 1956 All Ireland football winning wing back Jack Kissane.
The Kerry native moved to Renmore as part of his job with the Army and won a Galway Senior Football Championship in 1951 before joining the Galway panel two years later.
His first game was against Leitrim in the 1953 Connacht Championship and he would go on to form a solid half back partnership with Jack Mahon and Mick Greally.
This alliance would eventually help the Tribesmen win the Sam Maguire Cup in 1956 after an epic final win over Cork.
Brigadier General Jack Kissane’s Funeral Mass is on Saturday at 11 am in the Church of Christ the King, Salthill, with burial afterwards in Rahoon Cemetery.
