Tyrone’s All Star full back Justin McMahon has called time on his inter-county career after ten years at the top level.
McMahon wore the number three jersey in the infamous All Ireland win in 2008. Alongside brother Joe they rendered the fearsome double act of Tommy Walsh and Kieran Donaghy dubbed as ‘the twin towers’. ‘Justy’ held Donaghy scoreless in a mammoth display, before claiming a Celtic Cross in only his second year on the panel.
Captain of the Ulster winning Under 21 side in 2006 he graduated to the senior panel the very next year kicking a point on his debut, a national league game against Fermanagh.
The Omagh native will leave the County game with an array of medals, numerous Dr McKenna Cup crowns, a national league medal, three Ulster titles in the pocket alongside the hallowed All Ireland medal.
He will continue to line out for his club Omagh, St.Enda’s alongside brother Joe who retired before the championship after an injury plagued spell.
Total focus will be on Omagh’s clash with Ardboe in a fortnight’s time as he hopes to guide his club to another County title after their 2014 success while continuing in coaching St.Mary’s University sides in the coming year.
Ádh Mór Justy!
