Ronan McGarrity has retired from inter-county football with Mayo, the county have confirmed.

McGarrity, an extremely talented midfielder, saw his career with the Mayo blighted by injury and was regarded as one of the most talented players to emerge from the county in the last decade.

He played in the All-Ireland final defeats to Kerry in 2004 and 2006 and featured in last year’s surprise win over Cork in the quarter-final.

McGarrity hoped to be in contention this summer but injuries meant he was unable to make a contribution in their run to the final.
