Tyrone GAA has paid tribute to long-time rival Colm McFadden upon his recent retirement from inter-county football.
McFadden made a record 170 appearances for Donegal over almost thirteen years and is also the county’s record points scorer with 25 goals and 434 points.
His languid, almost effortless style, marked him out as a star from very early on in his career as he became one of the most recognisable faces on the Donegal team over the past decade and more.
The St Michaels clubman received a classy tribute on the Tyrone GAA Facebook page which read:
“A True Gaelic Giant Steps Down
Colm McFadden’s decision to call it a day for Donegal after a record 170 games and a phenomenal 25 goals and 434 points robs us all of one of the great inter-County GAA presences. In Tyrone we probably first noticed him with his 1-7 against us in the 2004 Ulster Semi-Final and more recently he was our ‘assassin’ with crucial, match-deciding Championship goals against us in 2011, 2013 and 2015.
A simply wonderful player and a master-craftsman who won everything a Senior inter-County footballer can win. Good luck with what comes next Colm. Beir bua!"
