Offaly All Star Niall McNamee retires
Offaly forward Niall McNamee has called time on his intercounty career after 13 years with the Faithful County.
McNamee was apart of the 2010 International Rules Series team and won Division 2 of the League in 2004, and Division 4 in 2008 and 2015. He was nominated for an All-Star in 2006.
Commenting on his retirement, McNamee wrote:
"Only seems like yesterday that I made my debut. It's been a huge honour to represent and captain my county.
"The time has now come to step away. I want to say a huge thank you to all of my team mates that I've been lucky to take the field with down through the years.
"Thank you to all the managers who showed faith in me. I've been extremely lucky to fulfil a lot of my childhood dreams and it is truly with a heavy heart that I call it a day.
"A massive thank you to all the faithful supporters for your support throughout the years both on and off the field.
"Finally a big thank you to my parents, brothers and sister and my girlfriend for always being there in the good days and the not so good days. I couldn't have done it without you all.
"@gaelicplayers thank you also for the huge part you guys have played in supporting my off field career. I'm really looking forward to supporting the boys next year and beyond and I pray that the glory days return to Offaly in the not too distant future."
