O'Dwyer ends inter-county career


Dublin's Ryan O'Dwyer has announced his retirement from inter-county hurling.

The Tipperary native made his inter-county debut for the Premier County in 2007 but after missing out on their 2010 All-Ireland win, he relocated to Dublin. He joined Kilmacud Crokes and switched his allegiances to Dublin, going on to play a pivotal role in their 2013 Leinster success.

The victim of an unprovoked attack in Birmingham in 2015, O'Dwyer suffered a serious brain injury but he managed to return to the playing field. Now at the age of 31 he has called time on his inter-county career, telling his team-mates after their game in Galway last month.

"I said it to the lads I'd soldiered with for the last number of years, I said 'thanks very much'. They made me feel so welcome coming in because I was taking a big chance," he told The Herald.

"From the very first moment I came in.

"Then I said to the younger lads, the years do pass quick.

"There's no point in saying 'we'll win it next year or we'll win it the year after'.

"You want to win it now. Don't be saying 'well have a good team in two years' time'.

"That time might never come. You might not play after this year.

"Even though we've had some bad times, the good times overshadow all of them."
