Andy Moran retires from inter-county football


By Cian O'Connell

Mayo forward Andy Moran has retired from inter-county football.

The Ballaghaderreen clubman enjoyed a hugely productive career in the green and red jersey winning eight Connacht Senior Football Championships.

Moran, who made his Mayo debut in 2003, made 183 appearances in League and Championship for Mayo.

Footballer of the Year in 2017, Moran also won two All Stars and an Allianz Football League medal.

Mayo manager James Horan paid tribute to Moran's drive and desire. "Andy’s retirement today brings an end to an amazing inter-county playing career," Horan remarked in a Mayo GAA statement.

"Andy was a brilliant player and fantastic person that did everything humanly possible to be the best he could be.

"Andy’s versatility on the field was special and he adapted his game as his career progressed, getting better and better, a testament to his continuous improvement mindset.

"A real role model for people on and off the pitch I want to thank him for his service & wish him all the best for the future."
