KERRY FOOTBALLER TOMMY Griffin has announced his retirement from inter-county football at the age of 33.

Griffin informed Kerry manager Jack O’Connor of his decision on Saturday, while the news was passed on to team-mates before a challenge match against Wexford on Sunday.

The Dingle man has played in both defence and midfield for the Kingdom since making his debut in 2000.

He was won four Munster titles and five All-Irelands, in 2000, 2004, 2006, 2007 and 2009, but endured a miserable 2011 and saw his involvement severely hampered by injuries.
