The Down GAA community is in mourning today following the untimely death of a popular footballer.

Peter Turley of the Saval Gaelic Athletic club passed away suddenly yesterday. In addition to playing football in Down, Turley also lined out for Queen's University in both of their Sigerson Cup final defeats in 2005 and 2006.

Many have taken to social media to post tributes to Peter Turley and his family since his untimely passing yesterday evening.

 

Our Executive Committee and entire Club Community wish to extend our sincere sympathies to the Turley Family following the death of Peter. Our Prayers and Thoughts are with his Family, Friends,
