GALWAY'S JOE BERGIN RETIRES FROM COUNTY FOOTBALL



Galway football legend Joe Bergin is to hang up his boots after 13 years with the Tribesmen.

The Mountbellew/Moylough clubman cited work commitments and a desire to focus his remaining years on football with his club as the deciding factors.

Bergin also revealed that Galway’s recent downturn in fortunes, including July’s 0-11 0-10 defeat to Antrim in the All-Ireland qualifiers played a part in his decision.

"I have been thinking about it for some time. The loss to Antrim was a huge disappointment and I feel now is the time to go," Bergin said.

"I have been fortunate to have a long inter-county career and while the last few seasons have been disappointing I was lucky enough to win a lot in the early years."

Sorry to see you go Joe, best of luck in the future.
