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.

Both played their first and last championship game against Armagh. Corey in 03, Mone 04.

Vinny Corey played 62 championship games scoring 3-8
Dessie Malone played 58 championship games scoring 1-12

Great servants to the Farney cause - some experience between the two of them.

Jim Gavin has stepped down.

He was up a ladder painting.

Was plenty of hints from the players in the media, a bit strange he didn't call quits after the All Ireland final replay. He showed more emotion after that final win than others, clearly it was a goodbye to incredible journey.

Is the ref going to finally blow his whistle?... No, he's going to blow his nose

Seems like Hyland didn't take to kindly to him walking away from the panel last summer. Reading his interview today, he's not retired but knows he won't play for Leitrim again until a new manager is in place.

He announced his retirement then he expected to not contact the manager to make himself available but for the manager to go cap in hand to him?

From reading the HoganStand article, he said he walked away for the sake of his mental health, as he was only back from a serious injury and wasn't on the starting team, don't think he classed it as a retirement. 

Not sure who should be contacting who in this situation? Is it not the managers job to make these enquiries?
I tend to think of myself as a one man wolfpack...
