Kilkenny's Hogan and Fogarty retire
26 Nov 2014 21:09
Kilkenny duo Brian Hogan and Aidan Fogarty have called time on their inter-county hurling careers.
-
Defender Hogan (33) joined the Kilkenny panel in 2004 and captained the side to All-Ireland victory in 2011.
-
He won seven All-Ireland medals, six league titles and was named an All-Star in 2011 and 2012.
-
"It is with great sadness that I wish to announce my retirement from inter-county hurling," O’Loughlin Gaels man Hogan told Kilkenny GAA.
-
"The past decade in the black and amber jersey, have been some of the greatest times of my life. I have had the opportunity to play both with, and against, some of the finest players ever to play the game. I leave with the greatest of memories of the best of friendships."

-
Corner-forward Fogarty (32) joined the Kilkenny Senior panel in 2003 and won eight All-Ireland medals and eight Allianz Hurling League medals.
-
The Emeralds club man was man of the match in the 2006 final All-Ireland victory over Cork where he scored 1-03 from play.
-
Fogarty said: "After 11 years I am withdrawing from the Kilkenny Senior Hurling Panel. I make this decision totally comfortable in the knowledge that now is the right time for me to move on.
-
"Playing hurling for Kilkenny at the highest level has been exciting, enjoyable, rewarding and, at times, challenging."
-
The decisions by Hogan and Fogarty bring the number of Kilkenny retirements in recent weeks to four, after defender Tommy Walsh and goalkeeper David Herity also called it a day.
