Galway forward Matthew Clancy has called time on his inter-county career.
The Oughterard club man has won four Connacht titles (2002, ’03, 05 and ’08) and an All-Ireland crown since he played his first game with the county during the 2001 championship. He won that All-Ireland at the end of his debut season.
The 29-year-old was invited by current Galway manager Alan Mulholland to join the Tribesmen once more for their impending championship campaign but the wing forward has turned down the offer.
He is one of very few players to win an Under 21 All-Ireland (in 2002) a year after winning a senior crown (2001) with the Tribesmen.
It is thought that work commitments are behind Clancy’s decision to step aside from inter county football. He will continue to play for his club, Oughterard.
