End of the road - Experienced Cork goalkeeper O'Halloran calls it a day

He won an All-Ireland U21 title with the Rebels in 2007 and was on the bench as they lifted Sam Maguire in 2010.

CORK GOALKEEPER KEN O’Halloran has retired from inter-county football.

The 2010 All-Ireland winner was named as a substitute as the Rebels edged Down to lift the Sam Maguire in 2010, and wore the number one jersey as they won the All-Ireland U21 title in 2007.

O’Halloran — who also played in goals for the Cork minor and U21 hurling sides — was between the posts that day as Cork beat Laois.

The Bishopstown clubman also bows out of the inter-county game with three National Football League titles and a Sigerson Cup medal under his belt, starting for UCC as they won the third level competition in 2011.

“Thanks for all the help and support over the years,” he tweeted this evening, and confirmed the news to The42 shortly after.

“Great days!”

The42 has just published its first book, Behind The Lines, a collection of some of the year’s best sports stories. Pick up your copy in Eason’s, or order it here today (€10):
