Having first been called up to the panel in 2006, 15 seasons ago, Éanna Martin has announced his retirement from inter-county hurling. He was the longest serving of the current panel.

Martin made his Allianz League debut in 2008 before making his championship debut against Dublin in 2009.

A versatile player, who has played in almost every position on the field for Wexford over the years, his most recent competitive appearance came as a goalkeeper in the Allianz League win over v Tipperary in 2019.

His most recent championship appearance came as an outfield player when he was brought in as a second half substitute in 2018 against Westmeath, whilst he also started the first championship game under Davy Fitzgerald in 2017 against Laois at wing back.

Earlier in his career Martin operated both as a forward and as first choice goalkeeper during the 2012 season.

In other panel news, Jack Cullen has also opted out of the panel for 2021.

Meanwhile, County Secretary Gearóid Devitt has announced that he will be leaving the role in early January after 2 years.
