Doonbeg’s David Tubridy, a key member of the Clare senior football team for the past fifteen years will not be part of the team in 2023.

It is understood that the top scorer in national football league history, informed Colm Collins and his management team this week of his decision to retire from inter county football.

He made his debut in 2007 when he lined out against Tipperary in the Tommy Murphy cup, having been called into the team by the then Clare manager, the late Paidi O’Se, winner of eight All-Ireland medals with his beloved Kerry.

Colm Collins’ reign as Clare manager has seen Clare enjoy great success including retaining division 2 league status for the past seven years. In that time Clare reached the All-Ireland senior quarter final on two occasions. Tubridy played a key part in all of those successes.

Throughout the past year the Doonbeg star struggled to shake off an achilles injury which limited his involvement in games.

It’s expected that he will continue to be a key member of the Doonbeg team.
