King Henry looks set to retire from inter-county scene

Kilkenny hurling legend Henry Shefflin looks set to announce his retirement from inter-county hurling.

After months of speculation, the Ballyhale club man has called a press conference for lunchtime tomorrow in  Langton’s Hotel.

The 36-year-old, who recently guided his club to All-Ireland glory on St Patrick’s Day, had said that he would delay any announcement on his future until their involvement in the competition had ended.

His retirement will bring to an end one of the greatest inter-county careers of all time. Shefflin is the only player in the history of the game to win 10 All-Ireland titles.

He also has 13 Leinster medals, six National Leagues, three club All-Irelands, 11 All Stars and three Hurler of the Year awards in his cabinet.
