Michael Darragh Macauley announced his retirement from inter-county football on Thursday morning.
It was a simple goodbye. "Sin é uaimse. Míle buíochas ó chroí," the Ballyboden St Enda's man wrote on Twitter.
Macauley is the second Dublin player to announce his retirement since December's All-Ireland final victory. He follows Paddy Andrews who called time on his career earlier this month.

Macauley had an 11-year career as a Dublin senior squad member, winning an All-Ireland in his second season. That was the first of what would be eight All-Ireland titles for 34-year-old. He was also named Footballer of the Year in 2013 and was a two-time All-Star.
He also won 10 Leinster titles and five National Leagues.
