14 years at intercounty senior level. Five Ulsters, one AI, another final.

From journalist Kieran Cunningham

Frank McGlynn has no social media accounts. Always wore black boots. Asked for his hobbies in a Q and A in a match programme, he went for darts and cards.
Pre-match meal? Soup with spuds.
Favourite meal? Turkey and ham. With a Club Shandy.

Frank McGlynn - One of the most under-rated players of the last decade.

Absolutely, one of the best footballers to play in the last decade. A player who could do it all. In the McGuinness era, he was every bit as important as Lacey or Murphy.

Eoghan O'Gara retired. Made a huge contribution to Dublin team over the years.

His goal v Tyrone in 2010 was a real turning point for Dublin

McGlynn was always one of my favourites from that Donegal side. Reliable, no nonsense, he popped up at important moments frequently, and as some have said already - there was no aul shite with him. Agree with the sentiment that he's one of the more underrated players of that period, probably mostly due to him not being one for the limelight, but proper GAA folk know his worth.

Agree with all of this. Super footballer

May or may not be retirements but Ger Brennan and Jamie Malone of Clare taking a break for 2020.
Likewise McAliskey of Tyrone.
Worrying rumours in these parts too :(
1 BIG CUP and 1 Cupeen so far....

Will make staying in division 2 tough for Clare.

Vinny Corey and Dessie Mone both announced their retirements today, 2 of the all time great servants to Monaghan football.

No surprise really with Banty coming back in, Malachy leaving seemed like a natural point for them both to bow out on too, but that's a serious amount of experience leaving the dressing room. They've been part of the county team since 2003 and 2004 respectively. They owe Monaghan football absolutely nothing and their presence will certainly be missed.
