Ballaghadereen native and Gold Coast veteran Pearce Hanley has announced his immediate retirement after 169 AFL games.
The 31-year old played 169 games, after making his debut as a 19-year-old in 2008.
The former Mayo footballer was originally recruited by Brisbane in 2007, playing 129 games for the Lions before joining the Suns ahead of the 2017 season.
Having struggled with injuries, Pearce Hanley has now told teammates of his decision to retire with immediate effect.
Gold Coast's general manager of football operations Jon Haines said Hanley's leadership had been crucial in recent seasons and he would always be part of the club's family.
