Six All-Ireland wins and two All-Stars later, Cork forward Orla Finn has announced her retirement from inter-county football.

The 30-year-old Kinsale native has played for her county for 12 years.

She made her inter-county debut in 2011 and won six All-Ireland titles in the next six years.

The Cork star also claimed six Division 1 league titles, and All-Stars in 2016 and 2019.

Finn confirmed her retirement in a conversation with the Southern Star podcast earlier this week.

"Even last year when I was playing I had it in my head that it might be my last season playing so I tried to enjoy it as much as I could.

"I didn't think last year would end the way it did but that's what happened, and walking off the field after losing to Mayo I was trying to take it all in because in my head it was probably the last time I'd be wearing a Cork jersey.

"It was a difficult decision too, though, and I gave it my all for the twelve years, and it will be such a change of lifestyle for me going forward, but I think I am ready to move on."
