Cork All-Ireland winning captain Graham Canty has retired from intercounty football.

The Bantry Blues man will continue to play for his club but confirmed today that his career with the Rebels is over.

“There are no regrets, certainly,” he said. “I’m glad to be finishing up with Cork while the body is in good enough nick. I’ll be continuing with the club, 100 per cent. When you’re playing inter-county, you don’t train with your club, realistically, so I’ll be glad to fall back in with the lads in Bantry again.

“It was a great honour to play for Cork, and to captain Cork, obviously, but it was also hugely enjoyable,” he told the Irish Examiner. “I was very lucky to have such great support from family, from my club, from the various management teams, all of which allowed me to play for Cork.”

Canty (32) led Cork to the 2010 All-Ireland title and won four league titles with the Rebels and four Munster championships, picking up three All-Stars along the way.
