Just four days after leading Ballyhale Shamrocks to a record eighth All-Ireland club hurling title, manager Henry Shefflin has stepped down from his role. 

The Kilkenny great, who is an RTÉ hurling analyst, took over the reins in late 2017 and oversaw back-to-back All-Ireland victories as part of run of 17 wins in championship hurling. 

The 41-year-old informed his panel tonight that he would not be renewing his two-year term, citing family and work commitments. 

Shamrocks beat Tipperary's Borris-Ileigh by three points in Sunday's final in Croke Park.
