Ireland and Leinster rugby legend Willie Duggan has died aged just 67.
Tributes have been pouring in for the number 8 who passed away in his home in Dunmore, Kilkenny of a suspected heart-attack.
Duggan won 41 caps for Ireland and was considered by many as one of the best players in the world at his position. He played for his country for nine years finishing his international career as Ireland captain in 1984.
He was part of the Lions squad that toured New Zealand in 1977. May he rest in peace.
