LEGEND: Henry Shefflin Has Won More All-Irelands Than He Has Lost Games
Kilkenny legend Henry Shefflin has officially won more All-Ireland titles for Kilkenny than he has lost championship games.
The hurling star was brought on as a substitute in the 58th minute of Saturday's All-Ireland senior hurling championship final replay against Tipperary at Croke Park.
As Kilkenny drove home to victory (2-17 to 2-14), Shefflin bagged his tenth All-Ireland medal on the day, creating an even more unusual GAA statistic, as he now has ten All-Irelands yet has lost just nine championship games with the county.
Stat of the day; Henry Shefflin has more all Ireland medals than championship defeats in a senior career that began at 19! #ManHenry

Indeed 'King' Henry, as he is dubbed by fans, became the first GAA player in the history of the game to win ten All-Ireland medals. He could well go in chase of another All-Ireland medal in 2015 - as he certainly didn't rule out the possibility when interviewed after the match.
It was a record-breaking day all round for the Cats, with team manager Brian Cody bagging his 14th All-Ireland (four as a player, ten as a manager).
