Tyrone county manager Mickey Harte paid tribute to former county goalkeeper Jonny Curran following his sudden passing on Sunday morning.

“It’s unbelievable. And such a great character. Johnny was such a happy go lucky lad when he was with us.

As in the nature of goalkeepers, he was eccentric, but he was a really nice lad, a really good footballer. Dedicated to being the best he could be and spent some years with us.

He stood in for us on the only day in my time that I have not been able to be there, against Kerry in 2015. He stood in and did goals and did a good job for us.

It’s very sad and as I said to the boys before, that’s really what life is about. We  lose matches, we feel bad and we are disappointed about it, but it is not on the same richter scale as this here. This is something that is life-changing and as for his family, his friends and neighbours, the people who will feel this the most.

But ultimately, it is his family who will have to live with this forever more and that is something they will not have anticipated they would ever have to do. I can only pray for them and hope they get the strength to get through it.”
