CORK’S PAUL KERRIGAN has retired from the inter-county game 13 seasons after making his senior debut.

Nemo Rangers clubman Kerrigan confirmed to The42 this morning that he has called it a day with Cork.

An All-Ireland winner in 2010, it leaves Ciaran Sheehan as the only Celtic Cross holder in the Rebels squad.

The 33-year-old made his debut for Cork in the 2008 Munster final win against Kerry and his last game was the recent semi-final victory over the Kingdom. He failed to make an appearance off the bench in Sunday’s Munster final defeat to Tipperary.

He played in two All-Ireland finals, won three Munster crowns and three Division 1 league medals during his senior career with the county.

Kerrigan also delivered three Munster U21 titles and an All-Ireland U21 crown with Cork.

He also won the Sigerson Cup with CIT in 2009 and represented Ireland in International Rules series.
