in Home/Sport by

JUST days after Brendan Bugler called time on his Clare career, fellow All-Ireland winner Colin Ryan has announced his retirement from inter-county hurling.

The Newmarket on Fergus man will forever be remembered for his precision from the dead ball but also made a huge contribution from open play during his peak in the saffron and blue.

The half-forward who made history as the highest scorer in Championship in 2013 confirmed the news this morning.

Ryan, who recently turned his focus on soccer, confirmed in January 2017 that he was taking an extended break from inter-county hurling and would miss the 2017 Season and this confirms the end of his reign in the Clare jersey.
