The sporting world reacts to Marc Ó Sé's retirement
The Kerry great won five All-Ireland medals13:57 Wednesday 12 October 2016, 13:57 12 Oct 2016
The sporting world has come together to pay tribute to the Kerry corner-back Marc Ó Sé, who announced his retirement on Wednesday.
Ó Sé won five All-Ireland titles with Kerry, and played in 88 Championship matches. He holds the record of most championship games played, with older brother Tomás.
The 2007 Player of the Year, Ó Sé played over 170 times for his county.
"If you told me as a child that I would go on and win All Ireland's with my heroes I would have said I was dreaming so to be able to do that has been one of the greatest thrills of my life." Ó Sé said in a statement. "To play alongside some of the greatest players to ever play the game is something I will always cherish."
He will continue to play club football for An Gaeltacht.
Marc O Se had a bit of everything but perhaps his greatest talent was that he made you want to be a back. And no one wants to be a back.— Donnchadh Boyle (@depboyle) October 12, 2016
Colm Cooper said he was most natural footballer in @Kerry_Official team. After epic career Marc O Sé confirms retirement to Dara O Cinneide.— Tony Leen (@tonyleen) October 12, 2016
The diving block against Monaghan in 07 is probably my favourite @osemarc2 moment. Cheers for the chats pre and post games— Oisin Langan (@oisinlangan) October 12, 2016
Possibly the biggest honour for Marc Ó Sé was that he was the only Ó Sé to make Weeshie's all-time classiest Kerry XV in his new book— Eoin Sheahan (@EoinSheahan) October 12, 2016
