Belmont GAA in Offaly has paid tribute to one of its former hurlers after his sad death.

In a short statement, the club said: "Belmont GAA would like to pass on our sincere condolences to the Kearns family on the sad passing of Kieran".

"He was a leading member of the team that won the intermediate final in 2004 and gave great service at senior level as well. He was a great character known near and far and will be greatly missed.

Kieran will be sadly missed and fondly remembered by his loving mother Anne and his brothers and sisters, Norman, Leanne, Darren, Arlene and Áine, nephews and nieces, Ruby, Jake, Jack, Hannah, Grace, Dan and Cian, aunts, uncles, brothers-in-law, sisters-in-law, cousins, extended family and many friends.
