MEATH’S STEPHEN BRAY IS hanging up his boots.

The talented forward has announced his retirement from inter-county football, the Royal County confirmed this afternoon.

Bray made his senior inter-county debut in 2005 and won an Allstar two years later before helping Meath to win a Leinster title in 2010.

He was the oldest member of Mick O’Dowd’s panel for this summer’s championship which ended with defeat to Tyrone in the qualifiers.

Former Royals team-mate Joe Sheridan led the tributes, describing Bray as “a true professional and most of all an absolute gent.”

He will be “badly missed on and off the pitch,” Graham Reilly said.

“Stephen Bray one of Meath GAA’s finest forwards over the last decade has called time on his inter county career,” Meath said.

“Let’s firstly thank the great Navan man and wish him every success in the future.”
