Waterford hurler Eoin Murphy has announced that has played his last game for the Deise and is retiring from intercounty hurling.
The Knockanure Shamrocks man suffered a skull fracture while on club duty in April, and will continue to line out for his club, but has called time on an 11-year career with Waterford.
"I'm 100% happy to hang up my boots at inter-county level," Murphy told the Irish Examiner.
"I'm looking forward to spending a few years with the club. It was in the back of my mind to give it one more year with Waterford and I didn’t go back until February, but I felt it could be a good year for us. Even after the injury I wanted to stay involved.
"I knew I probably wouldn't be playing but I got back training with the county at least."
Murphy has many fond memories from his time with Waterford, during he which he won three Munster titles and an All-Star award in 2006.
"In terms of high points, 2002 was huge. The first one (Munster title), after waiting so long since the last title , was sweet, but that particular game petered out a bit and we won comfortably in the end.”
"On the other hand, in 2004 against Cork — a team we’d have a lot of memories of getting beatings from — it was different. To beat them by a point that day, that was dreamland."
