Henry Shefflin’s retirement in 2014 drew a line under the end of a glittering hurling career. A record breaking ten All-Ireland victories and 11 All Stars arguably lift him into the position of greatest hurler of all time.
While Shefflin’s skill, determination and ability to dictate a game were peerless, hurling is not a solo sport and RTE.ie put together a dream team of Kilkenny players that soldiered alongside him during that golden period of hurling in Kilkenny.
Naturally, choosing 15 from such a high-achieving pool is no easy task and some talented players have narrowly missed out. Mr Sports Gift takes no responsibility for the undoubted arguments that will ensue but take pleasure in bringing this beautiful handmade hurling gift to you.
