Kildare stalwart defender Emmet Bolton announces retirement from inter-county football


Kildare defender Emmet Bolton has announced his retirement from inter-county football.

Bolton has been a key member of Kildare’s defence since making his senior debut back in 2007.

He earned an All-Star nomination in 2011, and was named on the 2010 GPA Team of the Year following a season where they narrowly lost out to Down in an All-Ireland semi-final.

He also represented Ireland in the 2011 International series.

Bolton suffered a burst appendix before Christmas last year, but continued to make a contribution during their campaign.

Bolton announced his retirement on Twitter on Friday evening.
