Mayo's Barry Moran has confirmed he is to retire from inter-county football. 

The 32-year old midfielder has endured an injury interrupted couple of seasons and missed the entirety of the 2017 championship with an achilles injury, one which nearly forced his retirement at the time. 

Midwest Radio reported this evening that he is to travel abroad for work and has informed both management and players of his decision. 

Moran made his senior championship debut against Roscommon in 2005 and won an U21 title with the county in 2006. He went on to win seven Connacht titles with Mayo over the course of his career. 

In total, he played in four All-Ireland SFC finals, starting one of them in 2012. 

With his club Castlebar Mitchels, he contested two All-Ireland club finals in 2014 and 2016, though they lost to St. Vincent's and Ballyboden St. Enda's. 

He intends to continue to continue playing club football, with Castlebar pursuing a fourth Mayo club title in a row.
