Niall McNamee today announced his retirement from inter-county football and Offaly GAA wish to thank him for the tremendous commitment and dedication he gave to Offaly football over a 14 year period, which began with a Championship debut against Laois in May 2003 and concluded in O’Connor Pk on June 26th 2017 when introduced as a substitute against Cavan in the All-Ireland qualifier.
During his career Niall played 42 Championship and 90 League games for Offaly and was the county’s most prolific scorer during that era. While he may not have gained major honours at National level he was none the less a household name and he gained recognition at provincial level with Leinster and also represented Ireland at International rules level. Niall was certainly one of Offaly’s greatest ever forwards, we thank him for the memories and wish him every success in the future. There is no doubt we will see him continue to line out for his beloved Rhode for many years to come. Thanks Niall.
