Chris Barrett has announced his retirement from inter county football.

The Belmullet clubman has 13-years service to the county and played in four All-Ireland finals.

An All Star in 2017, Barrett won an All-Ireland U21 medal in 2006.

He started last month's All-Ireland final at corner back and was one of Mayo's strongest performers against Dublin. In total he played in four losing All-Ireland finals, all against Dublin, in 2013, 2014 as a substitute, 2017 and last year.

He now plays his club football in Dublin with Clontarf and is the fifth Mayo retirement since the start of the year, following in the footsteps of David Clarke, Donal Vaughan, Seamus O’Shea and Tom Parsons.
