Former Tyrone goalkeeper Jonathan Curran has died at the age of 33.

RTE have reported that Curran felt unwell at home last night and was rushed to Royal Victoria Hospital in Belfast where he sadly passed away.

In a statement on Twitter, his club Coalisland said: "This morning we received the shocking news that our friend Johnny Curran passed away at 33. We are all shocked devastated and heartbroken with this terrible news. We extend our sympathies to the Curran family and his partner Clodagh and two boys at this difficult time."

As a player, Curran won three Ulster SFC medals and a Celtic Cross in 2008 as a substitute 'keeper for the Red Hand County. He also won a Tyrone SFC title with Coalisland in 2010 before stepping away from football a few years ago.

Curran left the county panel in 2012, citing family commitments as his reason.

During his inter-county playing career, Curran played alongside the likes of Colm O'Neill and Colm Cavanagh. He also played soccer with Dungannon Swifts.

"The people of Coalisland and the club are devastated by the news. There are no words," said club secretary Vinny McCann told RTÉ Sport.

May he rest in peace.
