Tom Parsons has confirmed his retirement from Inter-county football - becoming the third high-profile Mayo player to do so in as many days, after Donal Vaughan and David Clarke also hung up their boots.

Tom has played for the Mayo senior team since 2008, winning three Connacht titles, one national football league and receiving two All-Star nominations.

At U21 level, he claimed three Connacht titles and also represented his country in the 2008 International rules series.

He also claimed club honours with his club Charlestown Sarsfields, winning both Mayo senior and intermediate county titles, along with a Connacht club title in 2012.

Paying tribute to Tom Parsons, the Mayo GAA Chairman Liam Moffatt has thanked him for his outstanding commitment and service to Mayo GAA, and says it's a testimony to Tom that- despite significant injury problems and career-related travels, his commitment never diminished.

 "His absolute defiance and dogged determination to return to play from his knee injury in 2018 inspired so many and showed to all the character of the man. His off field career achievements and progression to act as Chairpersonship of the GPA further indicates his ability and I have no doubt that Tom will continue to assist the association in the coming years. I would like to offer Tom & his family our very best wishes for the future".
