Tyrone star Colm Cavanagh has announced his decision to retire from inter-county football.

The All-Ireland winner and dual All-Star made the decision public on social media on Tuesday evening.

The Moy clubman hangs up his boots with a drawer full of medals and accolades. Five Ulster titles and an under 21 Ulster provincial medal, two All-Stars, and of course that All -Ireland winners medal in 2008.

Cavanagh had an outstanding underage career and was part of the All-Ireland winning minor team of 2004.

Cavanagh joined the Tyrone senior panel in 2007 where he played alongside his brother Sean for much of his inter-county career.

Health is indeed your wealth

Colm Cavanagh said: "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 on to the next in line.

"I am 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 seasons ahead and I have no doubt they will be raising silverware together for many years to come.

"I will always value the friendships I have made along the way and now I look forward to supporting and encouraging my children if they decide to become involved in GAA sports in the future.

"The biggest thank you has to go to the people of Tyrone and all the supporters of Tyrone GAA, your support and encouragement has kept up going through some of the toughest times as a county and for that, I am forever grateful.

"Thanks for everything."

Tyrone fans will be thanking Cavanagh in turn for his performances over 13 years in the jersey.
