After 15 years David 'Dotsy' O'Callaghan has announced his retirement from the Dublin Senior Hurling team.
The St Mark’s won the Leinster SHC with the Boys in Blue in 2013, bridging a 52-year gap to lift the Bob O'Keefe Cup.
He won the Allianz League title in 2011, the talented dual star also won two provincial medals with the footballers.
The veteran confirmed his retirement in a statement on the Dublin GAA website:
"It’s been a great honour and dream come true for me to represent Dublin over the last 15 years.
"I would simply like to thank and pay tribute to all my teachers, everyone in St Mark's GAA Club, the Dublin supporters, Dublin Development Squad Mentors right up to The Senior Management, back room and medical teams for all their help and encouragement and to all the great players past and present I’ve been lucky to soldier alongside.
"A special mention to my family for putting up with my mood swings before big games!
To all the staff in Parnell Park and the GPA I also thank you for all your assistance throughout.
"Finally I would like to wish Pat Gilroy, his management team and all the players the best of luck for 2018 in what are exciting times for Dublin Hurling.
Up the Dubs!
