11-Time All-Ireland Winner Brid Stack Retires From Inter-County Game

11-Time All-Ireland Winner Brid Stack Retires From Inter-County Game

Brid Stack has announced her retirement from inter-county football.

The Cork woman won 11 All-Ireland medals and was an All-Star on seven occasions. She was also named Ladies Footballer of the Year in 2016.

Stack made the announcement in an interview with the Irish Examiner.

"You’d love to do it all over again," said Stack.

It went by in a fecking flash. But life moves on. There is still a great team and they're well capable of recapturing an All-Ireland. The future is good. Ladies football is a great spectacle now.

There’s a ladies team in nearly every GAA club, whereas we were all fired in with the boys in Rockchapel when I was 12. Looking back, that’s what stood to us. It toughen you up.

I'm moving on with the best memories, stories and friendships that will last me a lifetime.
