Cork dual star Aidan Walsh has called time on his inter-county career with the Rebel County.

The 30-year-old was part of the Cork team that beat Down to win the 2010 All Ireland Senior Football title.

The Kanturk man picked up the Young Footballer of the Year award and an All-Star award for his performances that season.

Walsh won a second All-Star in 2012, the same year the Rebels won a Munster title.

Two years later he collected added a Munster Hurling title to his haul of medals and played for Cork's hurlers up until this year.

The 30-year-old spent his final two seasons playing for the county hurlers.

Walsh posted on social media: "Was a pleasure and a privilege to get the opportunity to wear the red and white of Cork.

"Enjoyed every minute of it and made life long friends along the way. Thanks to all my family and friends. I look forward to the next challenge and representing my club for as long as possible."

Monday night's news came a day after his Kanturk club-mate Anthony Nash retired from inter-county hurling.
