TRIBUTES ARE POURING in for 2009 All-Ireland winning captain Darran O’Sullivan following his retirement from inter-county football on Tuesday.

O’Sullivan is now the fourth Kerry player to retire since the end of their 2018 championship campaign, joining a group which includes Kieran Donaghy, Donnchadh Walsh and Anthony Maher.

The four-time All-Ireland winner was renowned for his speed and skill since joining the Kerry squad at the start of the 2005 season, and former teammates, opponents and others have posted their tributes to the Glenbeigh-Glencar player and 2011 All-Star.
