Kerry county footballer Michael Quirke has quit the senior football panel. The news comes as a huge surprise to management who are preparing for a semi final date with Mayo in two weeks time.
The Kerin’s O’Rahilly’s midfielder has struggled to gain his place on the first fifteen this season and might have been expected to stake a claim after the loss of David Moran through injury.
The player has cited niggling injuries and ongoing personal commitments as the reason for his departure.
