Clare hurler Cian Dillon has decided to retire from inter-county hurling. 

The Crusheen clubman won an All-Ireland title with the Banner in 2013 as well as a league medal in 2016 as joint-captain.

The 30-year old defender also played on the Clare team that won its first Under-21 title in 2009.

Joint-managers Donal Moloney and Gerry O'Connor said: "Cian has been a central figure in Clare's successes since making his debut for the county at Under-21 level in 2009.

"Cian has been an exemplary ambassador for his county and for the game of hurling and we wish him the very best in his ongoing club career with Crusheen."
