Jimmy Lee will have to do without the Monaleen shot stopper who had been playing at senior level since 2013.

Limerick GAA have announced the decision that Donal O’Sullivan has called time on his inter-county football career on Thursday evening.

He was a key component in Limerick reaching the Munster SFC Final in 2022, the county’s first in 12 years.

O’Sullivan had been Limerick football captain since 2018 before being joined in a co-captaining role by Newcastlewest’s Iain Corbett.

There were times when O’Sullivan was even mentioned as one of the best football keepers in Munster.

The goalkeeper, who works as a doctor, was part of the team’s meteoric rise in the Allianz Football League too as the team, then managed by Billy Lee, went from Divisions 4 to 2 in the space of three years.

He also won the McGrath Cup in 2020, the pre-season competition for Munster football inter county teams.

“Donal has been a fantastic servant to Limerick GAA and has been a role model to so many present and upcoming Limerick footballs,” the county football team’s chairman Wayne Fitzgerald said.

“We wish him well in his retirement and thank him for all the wonderful memories he has given to so many Limerick football fans down through the years.”

The Treaty will begin the new inter-county season without O’Sullivan in Division 3 of the Allianz Football League, which will commence at the end of January 2024.
