When Brian Cody was appointed as Kilkenny Senior Hurling Manager in 1998 who could have predicted he would become the county’s longest-serving manager and most successful in terms of major titles won. He is regarded as the greatest manager in the history of the game.
As a player, Cody won three All-Ireland medals, four Leinster medals and two National Hurling League medals. An All-Ireland runner-up on two occasions, Cody captained the team to All-Ireland victory in 1982.
As manager he has lead Kilkenny to 11 All-Ireland Championships, including a record-equalling four-in-a-row between 2006 and 2009, 15 Leinster Championships in 18 seasons, nine National Leagues, including five league-championship doubles, and seven Walsh Cups.
