‘Hub’ Hangs Up the County Boots

January 31st, 2012

The Tyrone GAA Senior Football team manager Mickey Harte has tonight confirmed that Kevin Hughes has retired from inter county football.

Tyrone County Board Chairman Ciaran McLaughlin said that “It’s very disappointing when someone of the calibre of Kevin Hughes decides to hang up the boots.  In some ways it is understandable after all of the work that men like ‘Hub’ have put in over the years.  He has played a huge part in delivering two of our three All Ireland Senior wins, in 2003 and 2008,  as well as numerous Ulster and All Ireland underage medals.  Mickey Harte is in the process of trying to replace legends at the minute and the McKenna Cup win on Saturday is evidence of the fact that there’s plenty of talent still around.”
