The hurling championship is a short season. From the first throw-in of the year to picking up the Liam MacCarthy Cup might take just four games.
We want to know, however, if you can name the hurlers with the most All-Ireland Hurling Championship appearances.
As mentioned above, the hurling championship is far from the longest. On many occasions in this millennium alone we have witnessed Kilkenny claim glory having played just four times.
Clare’s run to the All-Ireland in 2013 consisted of eight games, including a replay. It is the longest run to glory ever seen in hurling, and is still hardly a significant amount of games.
A player’s longevity will be the biggest factor in making the list, alongside their county’s success. For instance just one player on the quiz below comes from a county who failed to win an All-Ireland.
Not surprisingly either is the fact that the majority of the players come from the modern era. This is due to the introduction of the back door in 1997. This gave players the chance to participate in more games.
Let’s see how many of the players you can name in the quiz below.
