Ciaran Gourley is the latest member of Tyrone's treble All-Ireland team to call time on his inter-county career.

Gourley played at corner back on the first Red Hand side to win the Sam Maguire Cup in 2003.

He missed the 2005 triumph because of a cruciate ligament injury, but returned to play a part in Tyrone's third All-Ireland success in '08.

Earlier this week, Gourley's team-mates Brian McGuigan and Philip Jordan announced their retirements.

Double All-Ireland winning captain Brian Dooher brought the curtain down on his glittering career in September.

Gourley is a teacher at St Patrick's Academy in Dungannon and coaches the school's MacRory Cup team
