VETERAN WATERFORD HURLER Declan Prendergast has announced his retirement from intercounty hurling.

The Ardmore defender told the Irish Examiner that after over a decade in the trenches with the Déise he ‘had enough done’.

Prendergast’s last run out with the county was in the All-Ireland SHC semi-final defeat to rivals Kilkenny last summer.

He won three provincial medals and a league title in his career.
