Johnny Doyle has confirmed last last night that he will retire from inter-county GAA with immediate affect.
Doyle cited family commitments as his reason to call it a day before the start of the Championship.
“I wish to announce my retirement from county football today. I make this decision very reluctantly but do so based on my family commitments,” he said in a statement.
“It has been a great privilege for me to have worn the Kildare jersey for the past 15 years and a wonderful honour to have soldiered with and against so many great players.”
Johnny is a true legend in GAA circles all around the country so here is a gallery of his greatest moments (and Phil Jones impersonations) in a Kildare shirt.
