McCaffrey rules out Dublin return


Footballer of the Year Jack McCaffrey says he will not play inter-county for Dublin again this season.

The 22-year-old is currently in Africa on ambassadorial duties for the charity GOAL, and says he will not return to the Dublin panel when he returns to Ireland on 18 August.

"No, I can’t see myself involved at all this year,” he told the Sunday Independent.

McCaffrey took a break from inter-county football in March after completing four years of a medical degree in UCD, who won the Sigerson Cup for the first time in over 20 years under his captaincy.

However, Dublin manager Jim Gavin will welcome the Clontarf clubman's insistence that he still retains his enthusiasm for the game despite his decision to take a break from football for five months.

"I’ve loved every second of playing football since I was four," he said.

"And you know that hasn’t changed since I became an inter-county footballer. If anything it has become more enjoyable.

"Look, I’m sure there are some players in some inter-county set-ups who aren’t enjoying it as much. But I can only speak from my experience and it’s been a great time."
