By Cian O'Connell
Mayo's Tom Parsons has retired from inter-county football.
Parsons, who made his Championship debut in 2008, played his last match for the green and red against Tipperary in the All Ireland SFC semi-final at Croke Park last month.
During his career Parsons won three Connacht SFC titles, one Allianz Football League, and three provincial under 21 crowns.
"Since 2008, it has been a privilege to play for Mayo and our amazing Gaelic Games," Parsons stated.
"It has been a journey that has filled my life with joy, passion, some heartache, resilience, and meaning. An experience that I'll cherish forever.
"To the resilient people of Mayo, I can still hear your voices ringing in my ears from the stands at MacHale Park to Croker, you are what make our games special. It's been an absolute honour to represent you."
