Tyrone goalkeeper John Devine has retired from inter-county football.

Devine made the decision following consultation with the Tyrone senior football management, but will continue to represent his club Errigal Ciaran.

Devine, who won an All-Ireland minor title in 2001, made his senior debut in 2002 and collected three senior All-Ireland medals.

Paying tribute to Devine, manager Mickey Harte said: "As well as being a top goalkeeper, John is a great person.

“He has had a tremendous presence within the squad and his influence will be missed.

"John was a vital part of all our All-Ireland successes and I wish him the best for the future as he continues his club career.”
