The Laois footballers will be without the services of one of their longest serving defenders for the 2021 season as Denis Booth has announced his retirement.
The Heath man has represented the county for the majority of the last decade and played his last game back in October when he started at full back against Westmeath in Division 2 of the national football league.
In total, Booth pulled on the Laois jersey on 64 occasions in competitive games.
He made 20 championship, 32 national league and 12 O’Byrne Cup appearances.
The 34-year-old made his debut in January 2010 and predominantly featured in the full back line.
Laois GAA paid tribute to him for his years of service in a video on their social media channels.
They said: “Congratulations Denis Booth on your career with Laois GAA.
“The commitment you have shown to the Laois jersey over many years was outstanding.
“Best wishes for the future and congratulations on your retirement.”
