Oisin McConville, Armagh and Cross legend, has surprised no one by announcing his retirement from club football this morning. Anyone who heard him on Off The Ball this week would have been heard the air of finality in his voice when talked about his playing career beyond Cross's defeat to Brigid's last weekend.

He retires as one of the most decorated players in the history of gaelic football: he won six All-Ireland club titles, seven Ulster Championships with Armagh and 10 Ulster club titles, and of course, an All-Ireland title.


He told the BBC:

"I'm happy with the decision and at peace with the fact that I'm not going to be playing football any more.

"I have had an unbelievable time playing gaelic football and I've won so much, but for me it was much more than that - it was my life for so many years.

"It is going to be hard, and there is going to be a big void but I have plenty of things to replace it."
