The announcement comes 17 years after his inter-county debut

Leitrim footballer Emlyn Mulligan has announced his retirement from inter-county football.

Mulligan first lined out for his county in 2006 and made his 100th appearance in the green and gold last year.

He also helped Leitrim win back-to-back FBD League titles during his career.


His longevity is all the more impressive given he overcame three separate cruciate knee ligament injuries during his career.

He confirmed his decision to step down via a statement on Twitter citing previous injuries as a decisive factor;

"Unfortunately my days of representing Leitrim GAA have come to an end," the statement read.


"Past injuries have caught up with me and my body just can't deal with the demands required to compete at inter-county level anymore.

"It was a pleasure. Thanks for all the support since making my league debut in 2006 until now."

"Looking forward to heading to New York next week now as a supporter to cheer on Andy and the lads."
