Dublin hurler Danny Sutcliffe has opted against making himself available for 2017.
Sutcliffe did not feature for Dublin in 2016 after withdrawing from the panel, citing study commitments as the reason for his departure, but manager Ger Cunningham had hoped to call on the All-Star next season.
However, Sutcliffe plans to travel and as a result will not be available for the 2017 inter-county season.
“Apparently, Danny Sutcliffe plans to travel abroad next year, just like (Dublin footballers) Rory O'Carroll and Jack McCaffrey did this year,” Dublin County Board chairman Sean Shanley is quoted as saying in the Irish Daily Star.
"So he'll be out of the country for a considerable part of the year and as a result he won't be in a position to make himself available for the county hurlers.
"Obviously it's disappointing news for Ger Cunningham and his backroom team but hopefully it won't prove too much of a setback in next year's League and Championship."
