O’Hare announced his exit from athletics on Monday through his Instagram account following the hip operation he underwent in late 2020.
“Retiring is never an easy decision for an athlete to make, but I am relieved to say that, although I will miss everything about training and racing, I am happy to be a retired athlete,” said O’Hare.
“Running has blessed me with so many opportunities and so many wonderful lifelong friendships.
“I wouldn’t have been able to achieve what I did without the unwavering support of so many people committed to making my dreams a reality”.

“Thank you to my amazing parents and siblings, who sacrificed so much since I was 12 to give me every opportunity to succeed. “Thank you to my perfect wife, who has always supported my dream and who never failed to step up and parent alone when I was away racing or on training camps for months at a time. “Thank you to my coaches throughout the years – Terrence Mahon, Steve Gulley, Dave Campbell, and Charlie Russell – for always steering me in the right direction and giving your all to my development as an athlete and as a man.  “Thank you to my children – Ronan, Riley, and Quinn – for being the best source of motivation an athlete could ever ask for, and for cuddles on the couch when I needed them most.

“Finally, thank you to all those who have supported me from afar, with kind messages when I won and, more importantly, messages of support when I didn’t.”
