ALL-Ireland winner Michael Geaney has hung up his Kerry jersey for the last time.

The Dingle attacker has announced that he is retiring from inter-county football but he will continue to line out for his club.

Michael Geaney: No regrets

His retirement hasn’t been reported on the Kerry GAA website or of the county board’s social media pages but the player himself posted on Instagram: “Had a great 8 years chasing the dream. Few too many knocks and just too much talent coming up to hang on. Best days of my life!”

He added: “Lived it. Loved it. No regrets. #UpKerry.”

The 30 year-old bar manager – a first cousin to Kerry full forward Paul Geaney – played his first National League game for Kerry, against Down, in 2012 and he made his championship debut the following season against Cavan.

He has one All-Ireland senior medal from 2014, a National League title and seven Munster senior titles.

Dingle GAA Club said it is looking forward to seeing a lot more of Michael in the red and white, now that his county commitments have ended.

In a statement the club said: “Thank you for the dedication and commitment you gave to Kerry down through the years. You always gave of your best and we all took great pride in seeing you in the green and gold”.
