To Pillar, Pat, Jim, Dessie and their coaches, I’d like to thank them for giving me the opportunity to represent the Dublin team and experience so many special moments.
I’d also like to thank my club St.Brigid’s for their support and all the coaches & members down in Russell Park.
To my family, friends andin particular my parents Pat & Angela and my fiancée Doireann, I owe a huge debt for their constant belief in me through so many highs and lows.
A special thanks to our phenomenal supporters for their unwavering belief and encouragement over so many years, good and bad.
Finally, to my teammates, it was the highest privilege to share the journey with you all. All the best for the road ahead.
