Although a year or two younger than the “Yank”, Shane announced that he was hanging up his boots after the Thurles game.
With a young family and running his own business, (see here), he felt the time had come to step down. The former Club Captain (and a handy man with a bit of 4X2), had attempted to retire already this season, but answered the call when the need was greatest.
A brief photographic look back.
We hope that Shane, will still be available to pass on his knowledge of whatever the hell goes on in the front row, to a younger generation.
