Henry Shefflin set for first step into management with home club
It’s being reported that he’ll take over the Ballyhale Shamrocks senior hurling team alongside his brother.

KILKENNY GREAT HENRY Shefflin is set to take his first big step into management, taking the reins at his home club Ballyhale Shamrocks.

The Kilkenny People are reorting this evening that the 10-time All-Ireland champion has been appointed manager of the senior hurling team.

Shefflin, who officially retired from the inter-county game in March 2015, will be joined at the helm by his brother Tommy — who led Carrickshock All-Ireland club intermediate glory earlier this year.

The duo will take over from Andy Moloney and Colm Bonnar following their four-year stint.

Shefflin won three All-Ireland senior club hurling titles with Ballyhale in 2007, 2010 and 2015.

The 38-year-old, who features as a pundit on The Sunday Game now, was involved with the playing set-up again this year but saw limited game time.
