The 28-year-old joins Paudie Kissane, Noel O'Leary, Graham Canty, Pearse O'Neill and Alan Quirke in announcing his retirement.

New Cork boss Brian Cuthbert has also lost Ciaran Sheehan to the AFL after he announced that he was moving to Australia to play with Carlton in January.

Originally from Dublin, O'Connor played with Lucan Sarsfields before moving with his family to Cork when he was 13. As well as the 2010 All-Ireland, O'Connor won Allianz League medals in 2010, 2011 and 2012 and Munster senior medals in 2008, 2009 and 2012.

He made his senior debut for Cork in 2008, having won two All-Ireland Junior football titles and three Munster U21 titles.
