Updated: May 12, 2011

After the disappointment of the League Final,there was further bad news for Kilkenny on Thursday night, when Martin Comerford announced his retirment from inter-county hurling.

The star forward had been invited to join the squad for the upcoming championship but decided to opt out. Comerford won six senior All-Irelands, five National Leagues and three All-Stars in his career with the cats.

“The time comes for everyone to call it a day,” said Comerford. “Now is a good time for me to leave. I got to play with and against the best,” he said. “Playing in a full Croke Park on All-Ireland day was beyond compare. I consider myself a lucky man to have enjoyed an experience like that.”
