Mayo's Ger Cafferkey has announced his retirement from intercounty football.
The Ballina Stephenites man played with the Connacht county for 11 years, making his championship debut away to New York in 2009.
Throughout the intervening decade, he became a key member of the side, shoring up the defence from fullback.
During his career, he won six Connacht Championship medals, and picked up an All-Star award in 2012.
