Limerick's Geary to retire from hurling

Tue, Nov 20, 2012, 00:00

One of Limerick’s longest serving players Brian Geary has retired from inter-county hurling. Geary, who played 13 seasons for the Treaty men, turned down the offer to rejoin John Allen’s squad for the 2013 campaign, despite being included in the extended training squad.

Limerick County Board secretary Mike O’Riordan confirmed Geary’s departure and paid tribute to a great servant of Limerick GAA.

Geary made his debut in 1999 and went on to make 45 championship appearances in the green shirt, including three last season as Limerick lost out to Kilkenny in the All-Ireland quarter-final.

The Monaleen club man played in the 2007 All-Ireland final but won three All-Ireland under-21 titles in 2000, 2001 and 2002.
