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.
