After 15 years playing for Tipperary in all grades, Conor O'Mahony has announced his retirement.

The 31-year-old Newport man has stood down at a time when Tipperary are in a transformation process under new manager Michael Ryan.

O'Mahony's role was mainly confined to the subs' bench this year and he has decided that the time is right to step away.

"Having had the great honour of playing with Tipperary at all levels, I have decided to call time on my inter-county career. It was a huge privilege for me to play with Tipperary. I have some great memories," he said.

The high point of a 10-year career on the senior squad came in 2010 when O'Mahony won an All-Ireland senior medal in what was Tipperary's first triumph since 2001.

He also won five Munster medals and one Allianz League and was selected on the All-Star teams of 2008 and 2009.
