Tyrone team doctor Michael Logan helped to resuscitate a supporter at half-time in last night’s All-Ireland under 21 football final in Dublin’s Parnell Park.
The match was held up for 40 minutes because of two separate medical emergencies.
An elderly Tipperary supporter died after suffering a cardiac arrest.
But a second man from Tyrone was successfully treated.
Dr Logan, a brother of Tyrone manager Fergal, came to the aid of the supporter who had collapsed in the stand.
The emergencies drew a quick response from paramedics from two ambulance crews, one of which was at Parnell Park for the match.
Fergal Logan said he was “thankful” that his brother was able to help in such a way, admitting both incidents gave a different perspective to the game.
Tyrone won the game by 1-11 to 0-13.
