Dublin defender Darren Daly has retired from inter-county football after 12 years on the panel.

The Fingal Ravens man won seven All-Ireland titles, coming off the bench in the final wins of 2013, ’15, ’16 (both the drawn game and replay) and ’18.

The 33-year-old said: "I've had an incredible journey with the Dublin senior football team over the last 12 years.

"I’ve tried to push the body one more time but unfortunately it’s not to be. With a number of recurring injuries over the past few months, it’s now the right time for me to step away.

"Firstly, I’d like to thank my family, and particularly my wife Sarah who sacrificed more than anyone to allow me to compete at this level year after year. I’m extremely grateful to have got the opportunity over the years to share some very special moments with my three kids Tadhg, Caolán and Odhrán.

"In particular I’d like to thank my team-mates. I am extremely lucky to have been part of such a successful team. I’m grateful to have learned so much from being with them, made so many friends for life, and have some of the best memories imaginable.

"I’d like to thank the managers, selectors, coaches and physios who guided and pushed me along the way.

"Thank you to the dedicated supporters who always created that unique atmosphere, and were there when we needed them. Finally, I’d like to thank my club Fingal Ravens for their support and encouragement over the years."
