Donegal rocked by further retirements from county squad

first_imgDONEGAL HAVE been rocked with the news that several high-profile stars will not be available for selection for the 2017 season.Rory Kavanagh and Christy Toye, who have made 309 Donegal appearances between them, have retired from inter-county football, Donegal boss Rory Gallagher confirmed at a press conference in Ballybofey this evening.Gallagher had been hopeful that the pair would be back for another go, but the experienced duo have ended their inter-county involvement. “They’re big losses in experience,” said the Donegal manager, who also confirmed the departures of David Walsh and Anthony Thompson from his squad.The announcements are really the end of an era in Donegal, following the retirements of McFadden and Eamon McGee in the wake of the All-Ireland quarter-final loss to Dublin in August.The news serves as a blow to Donegal, who have seen Leo McLoone and Odhrán Mac Niallais opt out of the panel while it has since been confirmed that Thompson hasn’t returned to training with the squad.Gallagher said: “We were aware of all of these situations coming up the road after the Dublin game last year.” “We’re looking forward to new challenges. We talked about extending our term and that was with the new players in mind.”Donegal rocked by further retirements from county squad was last modified: January 11th, 2017 by Chris McNultyShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)last_img read more
