Cavan's Cian Mackey has called time on his inter-county career, after 15 years of service.
The forward tweeted on Friday afternoon to announce his decision and 'thank all the coaches and managers' that he said 'improved him as a player.'
He also said it was a pleasure to play for the county and an even bigger thank you should go out to 'all his teammates over the years.'

The 32-year-old Castlerahan clubman was an influential figure off the bench in the Breffni County's impressive run in the Ulster championship last summer, that saw them reach their first Provincial final in 22 years.
Mackey came on in the drawn semi-final against Armagh and the replay victory.
He scored a late equaliser the first day out against the Orchard county in early June to extend the game before kicking another towards the end of extra-time to earn Mickey Graham’s men a replay the following weekend.
They eventually went down to Donegal in the showpiece in Clones on a scoreline of 1-24 to 2-16.
His final game for his county was their All-Ireland qualifier defeat to Tyrone last summer.
Mackey's club Castlerahan retained their Cavan Senior Football Championship title in October of last year, beating Ramor at Kingspan Breffni Park with Mackey scoring a point in the win.
