Murty Announces Retirement!
6th June 2012 By jess
Following a long list of retirements this season Munster mascot ‘Murty’ is the latest to call time on his illustrious career.
Murty has decided to hang up his size 23 boots in order to fulfil his dream and attempt qualification for the Irish synchronised swimming team at the London Olympics!
Commenting on his retirement Murty said “I have enjoyed my career with Munster Rugby but feel the time is right for me to move on and explore further sporting dreams. I was lucky enough to experience many of the club’s successes over the years but have decided it is now time to pass the mantle on. I wish to thank all the fans for their contributions throughout the seasons and hope my successor will inspire the ‘Red Army’ to the level I did”.
Munster Rugby have recruited Murty’s replacement who is currently in pre season training. At this stage he has been measured for his new Munster mascot kit which Munster Rugby will officially launch over the coming weeks.
We would like to wish Murty every success in his future endeavours and hope that his chronic history of slow punctures won’t hinder his new venture!
