INJURY-PRONE Sydney Swans forward Tommy Walsh has left the club and will return home to Ireland.

Recruited from St Kilda at the end of the 2011 season, Walsh only managed a total of five games across three seasons. 

He made his debut in 2012 and played two matches in 2013 before his season was cut short due to a serious hamstring injury.


"I've really enjoyed my time here," Walsh told the club's official site.

"It's the best thing I ever did.

"To be able to experience professional sport in two great cities with two great clubs, I've met a lot of great people and I'll have friends for the rest of my life over here.

"I'm not sure when, but I'm looking forward to coming back over here already for a holiday a few years down the line and catching up with everyone again."

Senior listed players Jordan Lockyer and Matthew Dick have been delisted after neither managed to play a senior game. 

That makes a total of five list changes for the beaten Grand Finalists with Ryan O'Keefe and Lewis Roberts-Thomson retired.
