The record breaking Brick Walsh, we salute you!

‘He is so humble and would do anything for you, no matter what it is, he is always there for you.’

Brick has broken the record

On Sunday afternoon in Semple Stadium, Waterford‘s most loyal servant Michael ‘Brick’ Walsh lined out for the Déise for a record-breaking 74th time.

This set a new record for the amount of appearances made by in a hurler in the All-Ireland Senior Hurling Championship. The previous record was held by former Tipperary goalkeeper Brendan Cummins, who was one of the first to congratulate Walsh after Waterford’s match against Cork on Sunday.

Ironically, Walsh made his first inter-county debut as a footballer for Waterford in 2002. The following year, he lined out with the Déise hurlers for the first time.

He has been one of the most influential and leading players over the years and has received 10 All-Star nominations and served as the captain under 4 different managers.

Our style ambassador and Waterford hurler Austin Gleeson praised Brick Walsh at our launch of the All-Ireland Senior Hurling Championship, admiring how professional and supportive he is.

He is an out and out kind of professional and down to earth kind of guy. He is so humble and would do anything for you, no matter what it is, he is always there for you. His performance on the field is unbelievable. He is 35 this year – we call him Grandad sometimes as a joke on him. He takes it well!

Many supporters flocked onto the pitch after Waterford’s game on Sunday to congratulate Walsh on this fantastic achievement.

And from us here in Littlewoods Ireland HQ, comhghairdeas ollmhór to you Brick!
