Kildare midfielder Tommy Moolick has announced his retirement from inter-county football.

Kieran McGeeney handed the Leixlip man his debut in the 2011 O'Byrne Cup in the player’s first season out of minors while his last appearance came in October’s National League Division Three win over Cavan.

Moolick started at midfield in the county’s 2011 O’Byrne Cup final win over Louth and scored the only goal of the game as they defeated Meath in the final of the same competition in 2014.

He also kicked a crucial point, the side’s only score in the final 25 minutes, as Kildare held off a Longford revival to win the 2013 Leinster U21 Championship.

"Over and out. Memories that will last a lifetime," Moolick said on his Twitter.

Kildare GAA, meanwhile, also paid tribute to the player.

"Kildare GAA would like to send our best wishes to Tommy Moolick on his retirement from inter-county football.

"Tommy made his debut with the senior team in 2011 and was a vital member of the U21 team that won the Leinster U21 Championship in 2013."
