Former Munster Rugby media manager Pat Geraghty has passed away following an illness.

Geraghty was the the province's press officer between 2000 and 2013. The Kildare native's time with Munster coincided with the team's most successful period in its history, with Declan Kidney leading them to Heineken Cup final wins in 2006 and 2008.

Many people are now paying tribute to Geraghty, who was in his 60s, on social media.
