Read Diarmuid’s statement below:

I have come to the decision to retire from representing Dublin GAA at inter county level.

I have been fortunate enough to play with an incredible group of players and I have cherished memories for life.

Throughout my journey with Dublin, I was lucky to have shared it with an exceptional collection of friends who displayed unwavering support and loyalty to me during my time.

I would like to thank my club, St Vincent’s GAA and the Dublin County Board for giving me the opportunity to represent Dublin from underage to senior level.

There was always a strong relationship between the county board, the teams and players and this had a notable influence on how we performed.

To all the Dublin senior management, support and medical teams that coached, treated and helped me throughout my fantastic journey -THANK YOU .

To my parents, my family and my friends - thank you for supporting me and always believing in me. You gave me strength along my journey.

Finally, I would like to express my eternal appreciation to the incredibly loyal, passionate and devoted Dublin supporters, who were always there for us, no matter the score. You will always hold a special place in my heart.

Thanks for the memories.
