Kildare legend and all-round sound man Johnny Doyle has announced his retirement from GAA and we at JOE will truly miss him.

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.
