Westmeath's Brendan Murtagh has decided to hang up his hurl on the inter-county stage.
A regular on the Lake County senior squad since 2001, the Clonkill clubman made an appearance as a 64th minute substitute in yesterday's spirited qualifier showing against All-Ireland holders Tipperary.
Westmeath GAA thanked him for the memories via Twitter today...
