Waterford’s Gary Hurney has announced his retirement from inter-county football.

The Ballinacourty man cited family commitments and injuries as the reason for his decision.

Hurney, 33, had a knee operation following Waterford’s qualifier defeat to Cork in July, his second knee operation in seven months.

He did feature as Ballinacourty won the county championship this year, but discovered he had two bulging discs following the club’s defeat to Cratloe in the Munster semi-final last month.

Hurney made his Championship debut for the Deise in 1999, while he also hurled for the county for three years and was part of the panel that reached the 2008 All-Ireland final.
