Michael Meehan has announced his retirement from inter-county football.
One of the greatest footballers Galway has ever had broke the news tonight that he would no longer tog out for the Tribesmen. He had retired in 2014 due to injury problems but was convinced to return to the senior panel under Kevin Walsh and came off the bench against Donegal last July.
Meehan was an underage prodigy who won two All-Ireland U21 titles before he made the breakthrough to senior. The Caltra man was one of the finest strikers of the ball in the game and a prolific goalscorer.
Meehan quoted Charles Dickens in a brief statement he released online "It was the best of times, it was the worst of times..."

Meehan was plagued by injuries during his career, with an ankle knock forcing him into a prolonged layoff. He continued playing with his club last year, but it appears Galway at an inter-county has seen the last of their talented forward.
