Lennon concludes Monaghan duty


Monaghan midfielder Owen Lennon has announced his retirement from inter-county football due to injury.

Lennon, who captained the Farney men to their first Ulster title in 25 years back in 2013, has revealed that a persistent ankle injury means that he has had to call time on his inter-county career.

"I was advised that my ankle has had enough trauma. It's time to leave it," the Latton man revealed.

The midfielder has been blighted by a number of injuries over the course of his career, including a serious back problem and an ankle injury.

"I got over my back problems 100%," he added.

"I had an ankle operation then in 2014. I got back after that but it hasn't been right ever since. I was at about 80 or 90% last year."

Lennon, who won the Sigerson Cup with DCU during his college days, missed just one championship match for his county between his debut against Fermanagh in 2002 and 2014.
