End game: Sharpshooter Kyle Coney has brought the curtain down on his Tyrone career

Having grown accustomed to words such as 'unprecedented', 'virtual' and 'restrictions' throughout 2020, the GAA fraternity has already become rather too familiar with the word 'retirement' with just one week gone in 2021.

Over the course of the festive season, and particularly since the New Year dawned, an exodus of top-flight players has impacted heavily on several county teams to such an extent that managers are already being forced into a squad rethink even before a ball is kicked.

The latest high-profile player to take the exit door is Tyrone forward Kyle Coney who only a matter of weeks ago had signalled his intention to immerse himself in their bid for renewed glory.
