GAA | Colm Cavanagh retires from inter-county football

Tyrone midfielder Colm Cavanagh has retired from inter-county football.

Cavanagh, who back-to-back All-Stars in 2017 and 2018, represented the Red Hand for 13 years.

The 33-year-old was the only member of last year's Tyrone panel to have won the county's last All-Ireland title in 2008, and says he is looking forward to spending some time with his family.

"2020 has taught us a lot, for me it has confirmed that your health is indeed your wealth, and with that, it is time for me to step back and pass my Tyrone jersey to the next in line," the Moy native said in a statement.

"I am very proud and honoured to have worn the Tyrone jersey for as long as I have and have had some of the best days of my life whilst wearing it.

"I wish the current and future teams the very best of luck in the season ahead and I have no doubt they will be raising silverware together for many years to come."

Tyrone are scheduled to face rivals Donegal in the Ulster SFC Championship quarter-final on November 1st.
