He passed away on Sunday at the age of 84.

Hundreds of mourners gathered from all over the country despite Covid restrictions to pay tribute to the champion of the game – including senior members of the Croke Park management team.

For over 20 years – Nolan played a key part for Wexford during a hugely successful era for the county – winning three All-Ireland medals.

The surviving team of 1968 lined out once more under their captain Dan Quigley – to escort Pat Nolan to his final resting place in Glebrien cemetery.
