Gavin Doogan has become the latest Monaghan footballer to call time on his inter-county career.

The 32-year-old midfielder said family commitments led to his decision.

He won Ulster SFC crowns with the Farney County in 2013 and 2015, and most recently helped Magheracloone to lift the Ulster IFC Club title on Saturday, when they beat Tyrone's Galbally 1-15 to 0-13.

"I've kept it on the QT this last number of weeks, he told the Irish News.

"Seamus [McEnaney] and me had a good talk. I have great time for Seamus, massive time for that panel of players, but I’ve three young kids at home, my wife is very understanding, but I just felt now was the time.

"I need to give them some time, some summer holidays. It’s a massive commitment. I had plenty of good days in the Monaghan jersey and I will miss it, but I’m looking forward to getting on the road with the family and going to Galway, Kerry, these places and watching them as a supporter."

Monaghan boss McEnaney lost Dessie Mone and Vinny Corey last week.

McEnaney described the Clontibret pair as "fantastic fellas" who will go down as some of greatest ever servants to football in the county.

"I have been very fortunate to manage two unbelievable young men from 2004 until 2010 and they were an integral part of the team," he told RTÉ Sport.

"They are two fantastic fellas who will be remembered forever. They made up their minds that I presume their bodies just can't give the type of commitment that is needed for inter-county football."
