Kerry’s Darran O’Sullivan has announced his retirement from inter-county football today.
The four-time All Ireland winner, who was also an All Star in 2011, captained Kerry to the 2009 title even though he was battling injuries throughout that season.
Donnchadh Walsh, Kieran Donaghy and Anthony Maher have all announced their departures in recent weeks and O’Sullivan (32) becomes the latest player to call it a day.
“I just want to say it has been an incredible journey. I’m lucky enough to have played with and against some of the best players and teams of this or any generation.
“I’ve made memories and friends that will last a lifetime and I can’t ask for much more than that.
“I want to wish Peter Keane and his management team well for the future, it’s an exciting time for Kerry Football and I’m looking forward to supporting you all.
“To the next generation, relish the challenge of being a Kerry footballer and never forget the players who went before you and put their heart and soul into it.
“The greatest honour you can have is pulling on that green and gold jersey and the pride that washes over you as it rests on your shoulders.”
