Kerry footballer Shane Enright has told of the tribute he paid to his good friend and former inter-county teammate Patruck Curtin upon hearing the news that he had tragically died in a car accident in Guatemala last year.

Curtin was working overseas for Liebherr Container Cranes when the accident occurred, and after his death on December 29 tributes quickly began to pour in from all corners the GAA community.

2015 all star Shane Enright was vacationing in Florida when he heard the news, and he paid his own tribute to his friend from Moyvane as he was being buried back home, which he has recently detailed while talking to the Irish Daily Star:

We did a bit outside to commemorate Paddy. We went down to the beach on the morning he was buried. It was about 6am. I just bought a few flowers down, walked into the sea and let them off. It was a nice touch.

The flowers brought to remember him, they were called crazy daises, and I think it kind of suited him. They were colourful flowers. They suited his character. He was colourful. He got on with everyone.

Then the crazy part. There was a small bit of madness in him, a good madness. It was something I enjoyed about him.

A lovely tribute.

Enright himself grew up in Tarbert, which is about 15 mins away from Moyvane, so news of his death will have really hit home for him, as it has for everyone involved in Kerry GAA and the local community.
