Niall O'Brien Announces His Retirement From International Cricket.

: 10/12/2018 - 12:00

Niall O'Brien says he's retiring from international cricket with a 'heavy heart' after 16-years. 

The Dubliner was prolific in front of and behind the stumps for his country, winning 216 caps. 

O'Brien took 241 dismissals as wicket-keeper and leaves as Ireland's fourth highest scoring batsman of all time, having registered over six-thousand international runs. 

Captain Will Porterfield says the 36-year-old played 'a big part in the evolution of Irish cricket' and 'showed what was possible' to young Urusg players.
