Mayo’s All Star full back Ger Cafferkey has announced his retirement from intercounty football.

The 32-year-old represented Mayo at senior level for eleven years, playing 104 championship games, collecting six Connacht SFC medals and an All Star award in 2012.

The Ballina Stephenites clubman’s last game for Mayo was in the national league against Cavan at MacHale Park in February, where he started in the customary No.3 jersey. But he had been plagued by hamstring problems and didn’t make an appearance during the summer.

Cafferkey took to Twitter yesterday to confirm that he would not be donning the Green & Red again: “It's been a privilege to represent Mayo but I’ve decided to call it a day. I want to thank my family, friends, teammates, management, medical teams that helped me through tough times, and all at Mayo GAA and Ballina Stephenites.”
