Four-time All-Ireland winner Killian Young has announced his retirement from inter-county football after a 14-year career. 

The 32-year old wing back from Renard did not feature in this year's championship, having been sidelined with an ankle injury during the league campaign, and has now decided to call it a day.

Young won four All-Ireland medals during a decorated inter-county career, three of them on the field of play. He picked up his first Celtic Cross as an unused sub in 2006, his first year on the Kerry panel.

His breakout year was 2007, starring at left wing back for Pat O'Shea's side as Kerry retained the All-Ireland for the first time since 1986.

Young was crowned 'Young Footballer of the Year' at the end of that season. 

He remained almost an ever present in the Kerry lineout for the next decade, winning further All-Ireland titles in 2009 and 2014, losing finals in 2008, 2011 and 2015. 

Young's final championship game arrived in the victory over Kildare in Killarney in the last weekend of Super 8s games in 2018, a match which, despite the result, brought the curtain down on Kerry's season.

Young announced his retirement in a statement released on the Kerry GAA website, thanking his family, his fiancee, his club, the Kerry supporters, as well as all the managers and players he played under and alongside. 

"Today I announce my retirement from the Kerry Senior Football team. After 14 years of representing my county at senior level, the time has come for me to move onto the next chapter.

"To say it was an honour to play with Kerry is an understatement, I've loved every single minute of it and if I could roll back the years and do it all again, I would in a heartbeat."
