ANOTHER OF Donegal’s experienced players has announced his inter-county retirement – in his own unique way.
Eamon McGee is the latest player to call time on his Donegal career, with the 32-year-old Gaoth Dobhair man revealing the news in something of a cryptic tweet, quoting from Lord of the Rings.

McGee follows Colm McFadden in confirming his departure, while St Eunan’s midfielder Rory Kavanagh is expected to follow.
McGee played his 100th game for Donegal in the 2012 All-Ireland final win over Mayo.

He was playing for London in Division 4 of the League when he had his ear turned by Jim McGuinness early in 2011.
McGee bided his time before getting in on the action.
Previously, McGee won a Division 1 League title with Donegal in 2007.
In total, McGee played 154 times for Donegal, including 57 Championship games.
