The 32-year-old made his championship debut against New York back in 2009 and became an ever-present member of Mayo’s backline for the best part of a decade.

During his inter-county career, Cafferkey won six Connacht senior football championship titles, an All-Ireland U21 medal, three Connacht U21 crowns and was named an All-Star in 2012. 

“It’s been a privilege to represent Mayo but I’ve decided to call it a day,” he said.
