Seamus O'Shea is the latest Mayo footballer to retire

Seamus O'Shea has followed David Clarke, Donal Vaughan and Tom Parsons in ending his inter-county career with the Mayo senior footballers.

Breaffy club man O'Shea, a brother of Aidan O'Shea, made 51 championship appearances in the green and red, lining out for the Connacht county 96 times over a 13-year spell.

He won seven Connacht senior medals, one National League, and an All Ireland Under 21 winner's medal.

Unfortunately, the Sam Maguire Cup eluded his grasp as Mayo narrowly lost a run of All Ireland senior finals in the last decade.

In a statement, the midfielder said:

After 13 years, I would like to announce my retirement from the Mayo senior football team. 

I'm hugely grateful to everyone who has supported me throughout my career. I would like to thank my family and friends for their constant support and encouragement as well as my club Breaffy for nurturing my development. I would also like to thank all my former teammates, management teams, coaches, medical staff, supporters and everyone who has been involved in this journey. 

I consider myself incredibly fortunate to have played for Mayo alongside an extraordinary group of players. I'm thankful that I've had the opportunity to do it for so long and I've loved every minute of it. 

Mayo football is in good hands and I look forward to watching my former teammates compete and win over the coming years. 

Séamie. 

Mayo lost December's All Ireland decider to Dublin by five points, but former Footballer of the Year Andy Moran has told OTB that the future looks bright with a new crop of talented footballers emerging in the county.
