Kieran Donaghy Contemplating Retirement

Kerry full forward, Kieran Donaghy, has admitted that he is thinking of retiring.

In an interview with the Kerry’s Eye newspaper, Kieran Donaghy has admitted considering his future as an inter county footballer.

Donaghy captained Kerry to this year’s All Ireland Final, but saw his side lose to Dublin. Although ‘The Star’ turns 33 next March, he his unsure whether or not to hang up his boots.

I do not want to put a time frame on my decision on whether to give it one more year with Kerry. Like anything there are so many factors to consider and I want to make the right decision and not to regret it in the future. Right now the major consideration for me is what is best for me and family.

Indeed Donaghy added that such a decision would be extremely difficult.

If it was an easy decision to walk away, I would have done it by now but it’s not an easy decision. It will hit me one of these days, ‘yes I want to help Kerry to try and win the 2016 All-Ireland Final or ‘I have a great career and I have been a lucky sod to be a Kerry footballer – it’s time now for the younger players to get their chance. Time to walk away.
