Shane Enright is the latest Kerry player to confirm his retirement from the intercounty game.

The Tarbert clubman represented the Kingdom for 10 seasons since making his debut in the 2011 National League.

On top of eight Munster titles, the defender was also an All-Ireland winner in 2014, an All-Star in 2015, and a two-time Allianz Football League champion.

Enright confirmed his decision to retire in a statement issued via Kerry GAA:

"I have decided that the time is right to retire after 10 years wearing the gear and gold jersey," he said

"I’m privileged to have played with some of the best players to ever play for Kerry and to have made friends for life along the way. Its been an amazing journey and one that I will cherish as I move on.

"I want to thank my family first and foremost, without them none of it would have been possible. The people of Tarbert who were behind me all the way, the Kerry supporters who drove us on through the good and bad days. I also want to thank each and every management team I played under from my underage days with Tarbert right up to my days with Kerry.

"I learned something new from each and every one of you. To the physios, nutritionists, doctors, S&C coaches, there are far too many to name but ye know who ye are. Thank you. Also a massive thanks to my employers Bank of Ireland who were so accommodating throughout my journey.

"Finally a special thank you to my fiancée Sarah and her beautiful daughter Kayla. Ye saw firsthand the sacrifices that have to be made to play at intercounty level, thanks for the continued support along the way.

"Looking forward to the next adventure," he added.

Shane Enright is the third Kerry footballer to step aside this week, following Brian Kelly and Jonathan Lyne.
