Heading into this weekend, Horgan’s record stood at 22-501 from 67 games. He hit four frees in Walsh Park as Cork registered their first win of the Munster championship to bring his total to 22-505 (571).   

Canning racked up 567, 27-486 in his career, between his debut in 2008 and his retirement last year. That put him ahead of Kilkenny’s Henry Shefflin, who amassed 27-484 (565) in 71 games.
