As we reported yesterday, Pauric Mahony has retired from inter-county hurling.
Mahony’s decision to step down was confirmed in a short statement last night issued by the Waterford County Board which read: “Pauric Mahony has tonight announced his retirement from Inter-County hurling.
“Waterford GAA would like to thank Pauric for his commitment to the Waterford Senior Hurling panel since 2011 and wish him the best of luck in the future.
“Pauric would like to thank the Waterford public for all the support over his career and wishes Davy Fitzgerald and the team the very best of luck for 2023.”
The excellent forward and superb freetaker was involved with the Déise senior squad for 12 seasons after he was handed his league and championship debuts by Davy Ftizgerald in 2011.

We wish him well on his retirement.
The 30-year-old will continue to line out for the all conquering Ballygunner side as they look to become the first ever Waterford club to win ten News & Star Cups in a row later this year.
As well as being a top class forward Pauric was also one of Waterford’s finest ever freetakers.
