Galway Women's Football Club

The big sports news in the West of Ireland this week is the announcement that after seventeen seasons Connacht captain John Muldoon will retire. After more than 300 appearances with his native province, the 35-year-old will bring the curtain down on his professional career. The Portumna man made his Connacht debut in 2004 against Scottish side Border Reivers, with the highlight of his 17 years at the Sportsground leading Connacht to a historic Pro12 title two years ago.

First capped by Ireland in 2009, his third and final cap came against the All Blacks the following year when he was forced from the field of play in the 66-28 defeat with a broken arm.

The very best of luck to John with whatever the future holds for him, hopefully it will involve inspiring the next generation of Connacht stars.
