Cats mourn hero Dillon

Published 15/06/2013 | 05:00

KILKENNY hurling is mourning the death of former full-back Pa Dillon who died yesterday.

He won All-Ireland senior medals in 1963 (sub), 1967, 1969 and 1972, a period in which he also won a National League medal and two Railway Cup titles with Leinster. His excellence as a full-back was recognised in 1964 and 1967 when he was chosen on All-Ireland teams in a promotion run by a GAA magazine, which preceded the All Stars scheme.

A member of the St Lachtain's club, he was extremely versatile. Although best known as a full-back, he played at full-forward for Kilkenny in 1966, a season in which they won the Leinster title before losing the All-Ireland to Cork.

Removal this evening to St Lachtain's Church, Freshford, arriving at 7.0. Burial after 11.0 funeral mass tomorrow.
