Former GAA president Dr Mickey Loftus has died, aged 93.
The Crossmolina native was a member of the Mayo senior football panel which won the All-Ireland final in 1951. He was a sub on the team and did not play on the day.
After his retirement from playing Loftus, who ran a medical practice in north Mayo, served as a referee at club and county level. He refereed the All-Ireland finals in 1965 and 1968.
Loftus was chairman of the Connacht GAA Council and the Centenary Committee which organised the Association’s 100th anniversary celebrations in 1984.
