Neil McGee calls time on Donegal career

All-Ireland winning defender Neil McGee has announced his retirement from inter-county football at the age of 36.

McGee was part of the 2012 All-Ireland winning team – and also won five Ulster titles, a National League and picked up three All-Stars.

He made his Donegal senior intercounty debut in 2005 and went on to make 195 appearances for Donegal, more than any other player.


He also presented Ireland in multiple International Rules series.

McGee had been hampered by back injuries in his final two seasons.

He will continue to play club football for Gweedore, who were knocked out of this year’s senior club championship last Sunday by Naomh Conaill at the semi-final stage.
