The 30-year-old has brought the curtain down on his 10-year career with the Rebels after winning four National League titles, four Munster crowns and an All-Ireland in 2010.

"The demands of the inter-county game are massive and I’m not getting as much enjoyment out of it now as I did before," he told The42.

"Over the last few years, the role of a forward has changed a lot. I was best suited to a corner-forward position and that role got more difficult to play in over the years. That was frustrating at times.

"If you’re not enjoying it and if you’re not 100% up for the challenge of putting it in for the full season, you’re better off not being there."

Goulding was named as man-of-the-match in the 2010 All-Ireland final after kicking nine points in the game.
