  • Former Roscommon Senior Football Captain Seán McDermott announced his retirement from inter-county football today Sunday January 6th, 2019. In a statement he said

    “Today I officially announce my retirement from inter-county football.

    It has been a great honour to play for Roscommon over the past 17 years, from minor level through to senior, and I have been privileged to have met, and played with, some great people along the way.

    I would like to take this opportunity to thank all players and management teams, past and present, whom I have been involved with and wish them all good health and success in the future.

    I would also like to sincerely thank my club Western Gaels for all their help and support throughout my time with Roscommon, and I look forward to playing with them for many years to come.

    To the Roscommon supporters; a massive thank you for all the support over the years, through good times and bad.

    Finally, to my family. I will be forever grateful for everything you have done for me. Your support, loyalty and understanding allowed me to play for Roscommon at the highest level, and for this, I thank you sincerely.

    I am looking forward to my next chapter in life, as I build on the success of the business, I have recently started in Ballaghaderreen, and which allows me to channel my passion and skills as a barber.

    It was a huge honour to play for Roscommon for so long and I have nothing but great memories.

    I am now looking forward to becoming a great supporter in the years ahead.

    Last weekend, the Rossies picked up their first win of the when they defeated Clare, but they did lose Donie Smith to injury.

  • Roscommon Senior football manager Anthony Cunningham says his players greatly miss human and team interaction since the squad disbanded.

    Cunningham led the Rossies to Connacht glory last year, becoming the first GAA manager to win senior titles - in both football and hurling - in different provinces, having previously led the Galway hurlers to the Leinster crown.

    This year, his side were joint-top of Division Two alongside Armagh and were pushing hard for promotion when the Covid-19 pandemic struck and the GAA shut down.

    Speaking to RTÉ Sport, Cunningham admitted that his players were finding life without football quite taxing.
