'Fathers will tell their grandchildren': GAA community reacts to Shefflin's retirement
From inter-county peers to people who just loved to watch him do his thing, here are some tributes paid to The King today.

TWITTER HAD BEEN well flagged about Henry Shefflin’s likely retirement today, but that doesn’t mean anyone has (or, likely, will) grow tired of paying homage to The King.

Here’s a taster of how Twitter reacted to the news from Langtons.

High praise from another code

And a fierce rival

Shefflin clearly has his work cut out carrying all the medal around

A pleasure to watch

And play with

A trailblazer

And a trendsetter

He made the team better

It was only right

The numbers don’t lie

There aren’t many true greats of the game, so the sentiments are familiar

A brave effort at photoshop

The bottom line

Enjoy it

How the world looked before Henry Shefflin came along and dominated hurling

‘His untouchable legacy is unlikely ever to be eclipsed’
