Not all sporting careers have fairytale finishes.

Sean Cavanagh's Tyrone career ended on Sunday afternoon, as Dublin booked their place in the All-Ireland Final with a 2-16 to 0-11 win.

Last November, the 34-year-old said he would play for one more Championship season, but the 2008 Footballer of the Year could not add a fourth All-Ireland title to his collection.

Sunday's game was his 89th and final Championship game. The Moy native will be best remembered for his performances in Tyrone's 2008 triumph.

The consensus Player of the Year, he was also Man of the Match in the four-point win over Kerry in that final.

Cavanagh scored the opening score of the game against Dublin, but could not add to his tally before he was substituted midway through the second-half.

It's the end of an era for the Ulster side. 2018 will be a weird one, not seeing Cavanagh in white and red during the summer.

Cavanagh was reportedly booed by Dublin fans on Hill 16 when he was substituted in the 55th minute. It was not the ending he deserved, but sport is not a fairytale.
