Sligo's Mark Breheny announces his inter-county retirement
Sligo stalwart Mark Breheny has announced his retirement from inter-county football, following a 17-year career.
Breheny, who won a Connacht senior championship medal in 2007, was the longest-serving inter-county player in the game after making his debut in the 2000 National League. His brother Tommy managed that Sligo team to provincial success in a one-point victory over Galway.
Sligo boss Cathal Corey indicated that Breheny was 'intent' on committing to another season with the county, but the 36-year-old St. Mary’s Club man confirmed his retirement on Twitter on this morning.
