Breaking: Collins Confirms Retirement From Intercounty Football

Clare will be without another of their key players for the 2024 intercounty football season.

Cratloe’s Podge Collins has confirmed his retirement from county action, calling time on a career that began in 2014.

He switched from a dual mandate in 2017 to focus on hurling, but returned to the football set up in 2021.



Collins is the latest player who won’t now be available for manager Mark Fitzgerald, with up to 11 of this year’s panel understood to be unavailable in 2024.
