Former Kilkenny senior hurler and Tullaroan clubman Tommy Walsh was the subject of a recent edition of Laochra Gael on TG4.
Having long cemented his place in hurling history, Tommy was the heartbeat of one of the most successful hurling teams of all time.
For his efforts on the pitch in the black and amber he picked up no fewer than 9 All-Ireland medals, 7 National League medals and a Hurler of the Year award. He is also the only player ever to have won 9 All-Stars in a row.
The tenacious Tullaroan man spoke to TG4 about what motivates him, Kilkenny’s success and passing on the number five shirt to his brother.
