Brendan Quigley retires after 14-year career with Laois

Laois' Brendan Quigley has retired from inter-county football, bringing the curtain down on a 14-year career.

The Timahoe midfielder had been part of the O'Moore's senior panel since 2006 and was nominated for an All-Star in 2012.

Quigley was part of Laois' All-Ireland winning minor side in 2003 which also defended their Leinster crown in 2004 and he was a key member of the team which lost out to Cork in the 2007 All-Ireland under-21 final.

He spent time in Australian in 2005 after being scouted by AFL club Brisbane but returned to make his Championship debut under Mick O'Dwyer in 2006 and remained a first-team regular for the next decade, making 43 Championship appearances.

The 34-year-old was troubled by injury in 2017 and 2018 but returned to help Laois secure promotion to Division Two last season. His final game in blue and white was the O'Moore's defeat to Meath in the Leinster semi-finals.

New Laois boss Mike Quirke has told Laois Today that Quigley "always gave his best for the jersey" and thanked him for his "huge effort" for the county.

“Brendan Quigley has stepped away, and while he didn’t feature hugely for Laois last season, he’s another who has devoted huge time and effort over the years.

“He always gave his best for the jersey and we wish him all the best in his retirement.”

Laois will mark their return to the League's second-flight with a trip to Roscommon this Sunday afternoon.
