    Unfortunately some awful sad news this morning. Leo Enright, who just last night was inducted to the Gaa Hall of Fame, has passed away at the age of 65.

    A proud Limerick man and exceptionally proud Patrickswell man, he was a towering figure in the heart of the Limerick defense back in the 70's and 80's, winning two Munster hurling titles in 1980 and '81. He also won three All-Stars between the years of 1980 to 1983.

    A warrior. A legend. A wonderfully gifted hurler in his prime. May he forever rest in peace.

    All of the above and a complete gentleman too.
    One of the most down to earth and unassuming individuals you could ever meet.
    Farewell to a legend and condolences to his family.

    Could you edit the title and OP, please. A lot will know who you are referring to, but most Gaa people would refer to him as Leonard Enright. RIP Limerick Legend.

    RIP Leonard. As a Cork boy taken to my first games in the 70s, him, Quaid, Cregan, Joe McKenna & Ollie O Connor were top names from a verygood Limerick side. He had a great style and grace. Sad day.

    Apologies if I caused any unnecessary confusion regarding Leonard Enright, as he is commonly known. I hope that this thread can return to remembering Leonard, as one of Limerick's and Ireland's finest hurlers and one of the game's true gentlemen. A Limerick warrior and a proud Patrickswell clubman. A very sad day for the wider GAA community.

    RIP Leonard
