Cork's Gemma O'Connor has brought the curtain down on an inter-county camogie career which yielded nine All-Ireland senior titles.

The 36-year-old St Finbarr's player also won 11 All-Stars for her role in a Cork generation which dominated inter-county camogie after the turn of the millennium.

O'Connor won her first All-Ireland medal in 2002 when she started the final at left half-back in the final against Tipperary, with the most recent triumph coming in 2018.

Confirming her inter-county retirement toThe Echo, O'Connor said: "It was a tough decision. I never even want to say the words that I'm not going back or I’m retiring. 

"I never envisaged myself saying it but I suppose the last year has been hard in that respect. It was coming. 

"I’m getting married on the 10th of July and obviously that’s a priority. But really I said to myself, what am I waiting for?"
