Johnny McCaffrey retires from inter-county hurling
Johnny McCaffrey has announced his retirement from inter-county hurling.
McCaffrey won Leinster and Allianz Hurling League titles with Dublin. The Lucan Sarsfields clubman revealed his decision to step away from the Dublin panel on Thursday.
"I would like to announce that I am retiring from the Dublin senior hurling team," McCaffrey stated. "I feel very fortunate and lucky to have represented Dublin since I was 13 making my senior debut in 2006.
I would like to thank Tommy Noughtan for giving me my debut.
"I would like to thank Anthony Daly and his management team for giving me the massive honour of captaining my county for four years, making history along the way. We in Dublin hurling owe a lot to Dalo for getting us back competing at the top table. I would also like to thank Pat Gilroy and his management team for the work they did over the last 12 months in getting Dublin back on track.
"I was very lucky to have played with some of the best hurlers that Dublin has ever produced. I made some great friends, won silverware and created memories that will last us a lifetime."
