Two-time All-Ireland winner Tommy Walsh (33) has retired from inter-county football with Kerry.

A panellist in 2007, the Tralee man made his senior debut in 2008 after winning the U21 All-Ireland title and was named Young Footballer of the Year as Kerry were beaten in the final by Tyrone.

In the 2009 campaign the 6'5" youngster produced some memorable performances, forming part of the 'Twin Towers' full-forward line with Kieran Donaghy.

Walsh scored 0-04, a quarter of Kerry's total, in the Kingdom's All-Ireland final victory over Cork that year.

A month later, Walsh moved to Australia to join St Kilda. He later transferred to Sydney Swans where he made five AFL appearances played before returning home at the end of 2014 following a serious hamstring injury.

A lack of game time with Kerry led to him to quitting the panel in 2016 but there was a surprise third act when he was recalled by then manager Peter Keane for the 2019 campaign.

Walsh's last appearance in the green and gold was as a sub in the All-Ireland semi-final defeat to Tyrone.

Kerry manager Jack 'Connor said: "It was with sadness that I learned today of Tommy Walsh’s decision to retire from the Kerry Senior football panel.

"I coached Tommy for two years firstly in 2008 with Kerins O’Rahilly’s when he was instrumental in helping the club to a county final and in 2009 with Kerry.

"He gave one of the great exhibitions in the 2009 All Ireland final against Cork when he scored four great points – two from either foot. Like his father Seanie, he was a man for the big occasion and raised his game accordingly.

"I wish him all the best in retirement, and I hope he continues to enjoy a fruitful club career for many years to come."

County chairman Tim Murphy said: "Over the past two years in particular Tommy’s leadership on and off the field has helped to encourage, motivate, and successfully integrate many of our younger players onto the panel.

"On behalf of all Kerry supporters I wish to sincerely thank and acknowledge Tommy for all he has done and wish him the very best in the future."
