Alison Miller has announced her retirement from international rugby following a glittering career in the green of Ireland.

The 34-year-old was part of the 2013 Grand Slam winning team and was part of the side that reached the 2014 Women’s Rugby World Cup semi-finals.

In 2017 the winger suffered a potentially career-ending double leg-break, but she fought her way back to fitness and played for Ireland again just under 12 months later.

Miller, from County Laois, was part of the Ireland squad that failed to fire in this year’s Six Nations, finishing fifth in the final table.

Announcing her retirement on social media, she said: "It has been an honour and a privilege to play for my country for the last ten years, however all good things must come to an end."

She made her Ireland debut in 2010 and won international caps in the sevens and 15s games.
