LIMERICK FORWARD NIALL Moran has announced his retirement from inter-county hurling.

Moran made his debut for the Treaty seniors in 2003 but had to wait until this summer for his first Munster championship medal.

He came off the bench and scored the game’s final point as Limerick ended their 17-year wait for provincial honours with a famous win against Cork.

It would prove to be his last score in the county colours.

“Rooster was an inspiration to us,” team-mate Gavin O’Mahony tweeted as the tributes came in today.

Every challenge he faced [with] Limerick he brought an incredible attitude & will to win.

Wayne McNamara tweeted: “It was a huge privilege to have played with Niall Moran for the last few years.

“A very professional & dedicated guy both on & off the field.”
