KERRY FOOTBALL GREAT Marc Ó Sé has brought his playing career to an end, lining out for the last time in a club game with An Ghaeltacht on Sunday.
Ó Sé won five All-Ireland senior medals with Kerry.
Ó Sé featured at corner-back for An Ghaeltacht as they lost out to near rivals Dingle in the West Kerry senior football championship semi-final by 1-15 to 0-11.
The result brought an end to their 2018 club season and the tie in Lispole proved to be Ó Sé’s final outing as the 38-year-old has called time on his playing days.
Táim taréis os cionn triocha bliana a chaitheamh ag imirt leis an nGaeltacht. Cuireann sé seo bród orm go n-imríos comh fada san le morán foirne difriúla. Cuimhní iontacha a fhanfaidh liom go deo.
Tá mo chuid déanta áfach agus ní féidir an clog a chur siar! An Ghaeltacht go deo pic.twitter.com/v9hBYJtwA6

@osemarc2 Enjoy retirement sir. Really enjoyed our battles. Some man to put the forward on the back foot. There was probably another year or two left in you playing full forward though 😉

Another county senior crown followed in 2003 with a final replay win over Laune Rangers and Ó Sé collected a Munster senior club medal later that year before being part of a side that lost narrowly to Galway’s Caltra in the 2004 All-Ireland senior club decider.

Ó Sé’s 15-season career with the Kerry senior side began in 2002 and yielded five All-Ireland medals, a Player of the Year honour in 2007 and three All-Star awards.
