Donegal half back Frank McGlynn has announced his retirement from inter-county football after 14 years.

The 33-year-old walks away from the county scene after a glittering career, which saw him win the 2012 All-Ireland Championship with Donegal.

McGlynn also won five Ulster Championship crowns with the county, along with a league title in 2007.

His own personal displays on the way to winning the Sam Maguire saw him nominated for Footballer of the Year in 2012.

While he was only named an All-Star once, he was nominated for the prestigious honour four times in a stunning inter-county career.

"It has been an absolute honour to have worn the Donegal jersey for the past 14 seasons," said Glenfin club man McGlynn.

"I have experienced so much during my career and I will be forever grateful for this.

"From great victories to heavy defeats, I have enjoyed every minute of it. I have shared a dressing room with some of the best Donegal players ever.

"There are memories both on and off the field that I will never forget."
