Tyrone lost to Dublin by 2-17 to 0-11 in yesterday’s All-Ireland semi-final.
It was a disappointing game, but it also marked the final championship performance from Sean Cavanagh, who had long said that this season would be his last.
A multitude of players and fans praised the Moy man for his contribution to Tyrone football.
See all the tweets, including Sean’s own message.
My incredible journey ends. Blessed to have shared the highs & lows of our game with some amazing Gaels. Thanks for everything @officialgaa

@SeanCavanagh14 will go down as one of the greats. His ability was unquestionable but his desire & work ethic for his team always inspired.

Kind gestures by the Dublin players towards Sean Cavanagh. Some of the crowd could have taken a leaf from their book. #GAA

That Sean Cavanagh was jeered off the pitch by Dublin fans on his last Croke Park appearance shows what kind of crowd they are.
