Long serving Clare football goalkeeper Joe Hayes has retired from inter-county duty.

The Clare Champion reports today the Hayes made the decision to hang up his gloves with the Banner County as the result of an on-going hip injury.

The Lissycasey shot-stopper first joined the Clare panel back in 2001 before re-joining again four years later, but it was in more recent times that he enjoyed some great success with his native county.

Having achieved promotion from Division 4 of the National League in 2014, the Banner men won the Division 3 title after upsetting Kildare in the competition’s final two years later and went on to enjoy an extended summer which saw them reaching the All-Ireland SFC quarter-finals for the first time.
