Cork hurling star Alan Cadogan has announced his inter-county retirement.

The 30-year-old attacker made his senior hurling debut for the Rebels in 2014 and went on to win Munster SHC titles in 2014 and '17. He also played in the 2021 All-Ireland final defeat to Limerick and was nominated for three All-Stars.

In a career blighted by injury, the Douglas clubman also played football for Cork, emulating his older brother Eoin in the process.

Confirming his retirement in a statement, Cadogan said: "Upon reflection I have decided that the time is right for me to retire from senior inter-county hurling.

"From a young age and seeing the Cork teams of the past, my dream was always to represent Cork at the highest level and I was privileged to do so in both codes from minor, to U21 and at senior inter-county hurling for the past 10 years.”
