Double All-Ireland winner Paddy Stapleton has hung up his boots. At 31 years of age, he has retired from inter-county hurling on the highest podium – with a current All-Ireland winner’s medal in his back pocket.

Undeniably, Stapleton has been one of the most consistent corner-backs of the last decade.

And some of his former Tipperary teammates have congratulated Paddy on a terrific career, via Twitter.

In a statement released on Tuesday (via Tipperary GAA’s official website) Stapleton thanked the county’s loyal support, his friends and his family while also wishing Tipperary GAA continued success:

“I’d like to thank the supporters who kept the faith through good times and bad, it was a huge privilege and honour to represent them.

“I would like to thank all the players I played with and I feel unbelievably lucky to have shared a dressing-room with some of the best Tipperary have ever produced. More importantly, I have made lifelong friendships and shared fantastic memories with great people.”

Congratulations on a terrific career, Paddy and best of luck in retirement.
