Kerry forward Seán O’Sullivan has retired from inter-county football for a second time.
O’Sullivan, a four-time All-Ireland winner, resumed his Kingdom career after a two-year absence at the start of the season, but has confirmed to the Kerry management that he has decided to retire for good.
The Cromane clubman was coaxed out of retirement aged 32, having initially walked away from the inter-county secene in 2009, and started Kerry’s two Allianz League games this year.
However, he informed his team-mates of his decision on Tuesday night, having been substituted before half-time in the four-point home defeat to Armagh.
"He was anxious to have a go at it because there would have been a feeling he went too early after the 2009 All-Ireland win," Kerry manager Jack O’Connor said in the Irish Examiner.
