I see Terry Hyland has retired Emlyn Mulligan!

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?

I don't believe he ever did that, just walked away after the provincial championship exit last summer, (that will happen plentyful next summer for players from the "lesser" counties) Going by his recent interview he expected to return for the 2020 season but Hyland has moved on without him.

"As much as my mind wanted me to stay, the knees were starting to give me a lot of trouble. I was having to ice them constantly. Not starting the last day was maybe the push I needed to call it quits. I wonít say Iím retired, but itíll be good to go back and give the club my full commitment for a while"

Now he's saying the body still feels as good as it ever has... A large ego who looks out for No. 1, his absence will be better for Leitrim in the long term.

Cian Mackey retired from Cavan

Good player, could score some long range points that few other Cavan forwards. Made his debut in 2005? Serious commitment to the cause

Mixed feeling on this. Grateful for all the great games he played but also a sense of he could've been better went on longer if his discipline and professionalism was better and I think he will regret that when he gets to 40. Sounds harsh but that's how I see it.

An underrated player at inter county level, Leo. Often popped up with an important and nicely finished goal, and a very good ball carrier and winner. Rory Gallagher sidelined him one season, and I could never understand why. Was arguably the best performer through the season in the U21 team that lost the 2010 AI to Dublin when Murphy missed the last minute penalty.

Not sure what place that has here, I donít think Kieran himself would appreciate comments like that.
