Finlay follows Clerkin into retirement


Veteran Monaghan forward Paul Finley has confirmed his retirement from inter-county football.

The Ballybay man follows another team-mate, Dick Clerkin, who announced his departure a few weeks ago.

Finlay singled out Monaghan's Ulster Final win over Donegal in the 2013 Ulster Final as one of his career highlights.

That win brought a 25 year wait without a provincial title to an end by beating the reigning All Ireland champions.
