All-Ireland club winner Kilbride brings Roscommon career to an end

September 19, 2021 0 By HearthstoneYarns

ROSCOMMON ATTACKER SENAN Kilbride has announced his retirement from inter-county football.

The St Brigid’s club man made his championship debut for the county in 2008 against Galway.

His last appearance for his county also came against Galway when Roscommon lost heavily in last July’s Connacht football final replay.

Kilbride did not feature in Roscommon’s 2010 Connacht final victory over Sligo but did win a Division 2 football league medal with the county in April 2015, scoring 0-4 in that victory over Down.

His exploits at that time saw him collect the Opel Player of the Month award in Gaelic football.

Kilbride’s career highlight to date was his 2013 All-Ireland club final win for St Brigid’s against Ballymun Kickhams, scoring 1-3 in that decider in Croke Park.

Senan Kilbride a true gentleman, the best performer of a left footed dummy solo I've ever seen. A joy to play alongside him @dochaseireann.

Last month he featured for St Brigid’s in their Connacht final loss to Corofin.

“On behalf of Roscommon GAA people everywhere I would like to thank Senan for his tremendous service to Roscommon GAA,” remarked Roscommon chairman Seamus Sweeney.

“I know he’ll continue the great work in St Brigid’s and through his work as a primary school teacher. Well done Senan and thanks for the memories.”
