A knee injury has forced the Naomh Fionbarra clubman to hang up his hurl after a decade in the sky blue jersey. He made his senior debut agaisnt Dublin in the 2012 Allianz League and went on to win a Leinster SHC medal the following year, Dublin's first in 52 years.

The talented attacker also won a Leinster U21HC medal in 2011 after scoring 1-2 in the final against Wexford.
