Dear Tipperary Supporter

Declan Fanning retires from Inter County Hurling

Having had the great honour of winning an All Ireland senior hurling medal with Tipperary this year, I have decided to call time on my inter-county hurling career. It was a huge privilege for me to be a member of this great Tipperary hurling panel. I have never worked with a more committed management team or group of players. I am very grateful to Liam Sheedy and his management and backroom team for all the encouragement and support they gave me. I want to thank all the players. We worked hard together but we also had great fun and I shall miss training and hurling with them. I also want to thank my club, Killenaule, for their great loyalty and support during my time playing with Tipperary. Playing inter-county hurling requires lots of sacrifices particularly from players’ families. I want to thank my wife, Lucy, and my family for their great support at all times. Finally, I want to wish Tipperary well for the future. I have no doubt this current group of players will go on to bring many more honours to the county.

Tipperary County Board statement on retirement of Declan Fanning

His quiet and determined personality was hugely influential on Tipperary’s success this year and he is held in very high regard by his fellow players, by team management and all associated with Tipperary hurling. He epitomised all that is good in the GAA. He will be missed very much. We thank him for his dedicated service and wish him and his family well for the future.

Mar is eol do chách, is é an club bunchloch an Chumainn ach seachas na cluichí Gaelacha a chur chun cinn agus a fhorbairt ní mor dúinne go léir-ach go háirithe na hoifigigh sna clubanna – aitmaisféar Gaelach a chothú agus an Ghaeilge a chur chun cinn sna clubanna agus sa Chumann araon. Tá súil ag Bord an Chontae go mbeidh Oifigeach Gaeilge/Cultúrtha ceaptha i ngach club sa chontae roimh deireadh na bliana. Tá dlúth cheangal ag an gCumann Luthchleas Gael le saibhreas agus le hoidhreacht chultúrtha ar sinsear agus is Í an Aos Óg a chinnteoidh go mbeidh ár dteanga fein slán amach anseo ach go mbeidh deashampla agus spreagadh uathu go géar sna clubanna.
