Henry Shefflin

All Ireland Winning Hurling Captain and Current Galway GAA Hurling Manager

Keynote Speaker at Reliability Ireland

Leadership, culture and teamwork

Since the turn of the millennium, when Kilkenny established itself as the dominant force in hurling, one man has stood out from a remarkable group of players: Henry Shefflin.

Now widely regarded as the greatest player of all time, Shefflin has eleven All-Stars and a record three Hurler of the Year awards and ten All-Ireland medals – but beneath the surface image of calm efficiency and effortless genius, his hurling life has included its share of bitter disappointments, agonising injuries and intense rivalries.

Shefflin  is the current Galway GAA Hurling Manger after taking up this new challenge in 2022. He has already led his home club team Ballyhale to two All Ireland titles in 2018 and 2019.

During his playing days, he won a record-breaking eleven All-Star Awards, as well as being the only player ever to be named Hurler of the Year on three occasions. He has been repeatedly voted onto teams made up of the sport’s greats, including in 2009 when he was picked on a special Leinster team of the past twenty-five years as well as being named in the top spot on a special list of the 125 greatest hurlers of all-time

In this keynote presentation at Reliability Ireland, Henry will share his thoughts and experiences of leadership, culture and teamwork.
