Over $50k has been raised in a single day in a bid to bring the body of former Connacht rugby player Kevin Moran home to Ireland following his untimely death in Australia.
Kevin (32), from Mulranny, Co Mayo, died after a road crash in Brisbane last Friday.
A fundraising page was set up on gofundme.com, with $50,040 of the $150k target already raised after just one day.
Mr Moran was well-known within the sporting scene in Mayo and was highly regarded both on and off the pitch.
A keen rugby player, he played at under-age level for Connacht and was also a key player for the Westport Bulls.
Mr Moran was also a talented soccer player and an important member of the Achill Rovers side for a number of seasons.
