Tributes paid to retiring Rory

November 13, 2014

Offaly's Rory Hanniffy collides with Kilkenny's Matthew Ruth during the 2011 NHL Div1 game at Nowlan Park.

Many tributes have been paid on twitter to Offaly hurler Rory Hanniffy, who announced his inter-county retirement last night.

The versatile Birr clubman made 45 championship appearances for the Faithful County during a 14-year senior career which, surprisingly, yielded just a pair of Allianz League Division 2 medals in 2005 and '09.

Hanniffy is also the holder of Leinster minor and U21 medals (both won in 2000), two All-Ireland club medals (2002 and 2003) and half a dozen county championship medals.
