Brendan Harrison has played his last game for the Mayo senior footballers.

The Aghamore clubman made his competitive debut in 2014 and went on to represent his county 67 times in league and championship fare.

Harrison won five Connacht SFC titles, a Division 1 FL in 2019, was an All Star in 2016, played in two All-Ireland SFC finals and also represented Ireland in the International Rules Series.

"I had my problems with injuries over the past five seasons and while that was frustrating, I look back on my time with Mayo with very happy memories. Injuries mean that I cannot continue to train at the required level,” explained Harrison.

"I thank my club Aghamore and my local community of Kilkelly for their support at all stages and my wife Natasha and my entire family who made many sacrifices so that I could play for Mayo. I look forward to being around for the many milestones ahead for our three young children.

"I wish Mayo every success in 2024 and beyond and know that the players involved now will continue to represent the county with pride."
