Stephen Walsh Calls Time on Inter-County Hurling (December 2015)
After some consideration over the past number of weeks, I feel it is now right for me to call time on my inter-county career with Limerick. The commitment required to be an effective inter-county player in today’s game is immense. Having taken on a new career role in September, I no longer feel that I can give 100% commitment to the cause.
I have been part of Limerick hurling and football teams at all levels from u16 to senior level over the last 15 years. My one sporting ambition as a child was to hurl for Limerick and I’m deeply honoured that I was afforded the opportunity to do just that. I’m grateful to the management teams, their backroom staff and Limerick County Board for helping to make my dreams a reality and for encouraging me at all times. I want to sincerely thank all the players on the panel. I have nothing but admiration and respect for all of them. I leave with a lifetime of memories and many great friendships.
I come from a small, rural area and it was with great pride that I represented the people of Glenroe and Ballylanders each time that I wore the green of Limerick. Thanks to everybody in both clubs for their support and loyalty over the years.
My family and friends have been a constant support to me and I wish to thank them also. Thanks too to Katie, her support has been unwavering throughout my inter-county journey and she has made numerous sacrifices in the interests of my hurling career.
To finish, I wish Limerick well for the future. I firmly believe in this talented group to achieve further success and I look forward to witnessing them do just that.
