Keaney calls time on Dublin

Dublin's Conal Keaney has announced his retirement from inter-county hurling.

The 33-year-old dual player, who won the club football championship with Ballyboden St Enda’s on St Parick's Day, is stepping down from Ger Cunningham’s panel because of family and business commitments.

"I’ve two young kids and I’m never really at home," he told the Evening Herald.

"I’m self-employed, I’m only after opening another new business, so time-wise it’s hard to juggle it all. And with the commitment you need for inter-county, you need to be giving it 100%.

“Realistically, I’m not getting any younger. It’s probably a nice way, to finish it off on a high with the club winning the All-Ireland.

“And just off the field, things happened last year that I wasn’t really overly comfortable with, and now is probably the right time to step aside.

"That’s three or four or five reasons, and if you have one reason it’s probably enough to go.”

In seven years as a Dublin footballer, Keaney won one National League title and five Leinster titles, but missed out on the Sam Maguire in 2011 after choosing to focus on hurling that year.

However, he won a National Hurling League title with the Sky Blues in 2011 and the Leinster title in 2013.
