Tributes have been pouring in following the death of camogie legend Eileen O'Mahony.
The eight-time All-Ireland winning goalkeeper was named on the Camogie Association’s Team of the Century in 2004.
She played for Dublin from 1949 to 1957, captaining her county to All-Ireland glory in her final year.
She also won five Dublin championships with the Coolock-based Celtic camogie club.
The citation at the awards ceremony back in 2004 said O'Mahony was "quick to react between the posts, sure and confident, she had a great understanding with her backs, her lengthy clearance and long puck out were other features of her game."
Dublin Camogie posted a picture on Twitter of O'Mahony and her team mates, paying tribute to the late star.
They commented: "A DUBLIN LEGEND HAS GONE. Eileen Duffy - O’Mahony RIP.
"Eileen played with Celtic and won five Dublin county championships, representing Dublin from 1949 to 1957 and won 8 All Ireland medals in that golden era of Dublin Camogie.
"Eileen was Dublin captain when she won her last All Ireland in 1957.
"Eileen was the Leinster goalkeeper when the first Interprovincial game was played in Navan to mark the Golden Jubilee of Cumann Camogaiochta in 1954.
"Eileen was selected as Sports Star of the Year in 1951 and 1957 and was also picked as no 1 on the Team Of The Centuary."
