Former Dublin forward Philip Ryan has been added to the Tipperary football panel for the 2021 season.

Ryan won an All-Ireland Under-21 title with the Dubs back in 2012 under Jim Gavin and progressed, with Gavin, to the senior panel.

He was an unused substitute in the 2015 All-Ireland final defeat of Kerry.

The Premier County begin their Allianz Football League Division 3 campaign against Limerick this Saturday.

Meanwhile, Sligo defender Neil Ewing has called time on his inter-county football career after 13 years. He was on the 2010 team that lost to Roscommon by a point in the Connacht SFC final.

The 33-year-old, who captained his county, tweeted: "Dodged injury for a long time but luck couldn't last forever. At the minute the body is not willing to do what the head is telling it.

"It was a childhood dream to pull on the Sligo jersey. An honour to have enjoyed the opportunity to do so.

"Hugely disappointing to not have a Connacht championship medal. Will forever regret a free I gave away in 2010. Did everything I could, in my limited capabilities, to make up for that moment."
