Tributes are being paid to former Tipperary footballer, Rachel Kenneally, who has passed away at the age of 26

Kenneally represented her county in the 2013 All-Ireland Intermediate final against Cavan, playing at corner back.

She was also a Munster B Championship winner in 2009 and 2010, before playing in the National League Division 2 final in the latter year.

Current Tipperary ladies football manager, Shane Ronayne, paid tribute to the Aherlow footballer on Twitter this morning.


“On behalf of everybody involved with the Tipperary Ladies Football Senior squad I would like to express our sincere sympathies to the family and friends of Rachel Kenneally our former player, teammate and friend,” Ronayne said.

“We are all proud to have had the opportunity to coach and play with Rachel and very privileged to have known her as a person. She was a fantastic player and a wonderful character full of life, humour and great courage.

“She will be sorely missed but forever remembered”, he added.
