2024 TG4 All-Ireland Finals tickets

Cork Legend Murphy Calls it a Day


Former All Ireland winning captain, Juliet Murphy, has today announced her retirement from both InterCounty and club football. Murphy is one of the most decorated players ever to play the game making her last appearance in the Cork colours last September in Croke Park where her Cork team overcame Kerry to claim their 7th All Ireland in 8 years with Juliet featuring in each of those victories. She has also captained Cork to three of those All Ireland Final victories in 2005, 2006 and 2007.


Juliet has been selected for an All Star on five separate occasions and was the Player of the Year in 2011. The Donoughmore club player was also a great servant for her club with whom she won All Ireland Club Titles in 2001 and 2003. She was also the subject of the TG4 programme ‘Laochra Gael’ earlier this year.


Speaking about her retirement Juliet said ‘It has been a fantastic experience being involved in Ladies Football since I was 13 with my club Donoughmore. Being involved with the successful club team has been amazing and lead to playing Intercounty football with Cork for the past decade. I am just grateful for having the sport in my life and for being able to play it at a high level but mostly for the great friends that I have made out of it, I will always treasure those memories.’


Speaking about the announcement LGFA President Pat Quill said ‘Juliet is one of the best players ever to play the game, she was a great player and leader and a wonderful ambassador for the sport. Her performances on the field and her conduct off the field helped to raise the profile of our sport to new levels. I would like to thank Juliet for the enjoyment that she has brought us throughout her career and on behalf of the LGFA I would like to wish her the very best of luck in the future.’
