Limerick's Wayne McNamara has announced his retirement from inter-county hurling.
A member of the Limerick senior hurling panel since 2006, McNamara made his championship debut two years later and during his inter-county career he went on to win a Munster SHC title and an Allianz Hurling League Division 1B medal.
"Having represented Limerick since 2006 making my senior debut in 2007, I have decided it's the right time to step away from inter county hurling," McNamara said in a statement released via Limerick GAA.
“It was always my dream to play for Limerick and I'm very thankful I got to live that dream.
“I was very fortunate during my career to have played alongside and against some wonderful hurlers and sportsmen, many of whom will remain friends for life.
“Wearing the Limerick jersey, representing my club and family was always a cherished honour for me but no county player can perform without the support of others.
“To John Kiely and current Limerick management and players, I wish you the very best in the coming season” he concluded.
