Padraic Maher Retires From Hurling.

Thurles.info congratulates Padraic Maher on a magnificent hurling career following his retirement from the game of hurling on medical advice.

The Thurles Sarsfields and Tipperary hurler announced the shock decision this morning.

A true giant of the game, Padraic retires from the intercounty scene as holder of 3 All Ireland Senior Titles, 1 Under-21 All Ireland (as Captain in 2010) and 2 All Ireland Minor Hurling titles. Padraic won 6 All-Stars awards, the latest being in 2019 alongside his brother Ronan.

Padraic’s playing days with Thurles Sarsfields have also been cut short, and he can reflect proudly on his days in the famous Blue jersey as holder of 1 Munster Club Hurling Title and 7 Tipperary Senior Hurling Club Titles (Captaining the Sarsfields to 4 Dan Breen Titles) as well as numerous underage titles, with Thurles Sarsfields, Durlas Óg, Thurles CBS and Scoil Ailbhe.

Padraic was the lynchpin of the defence in every team he played in, and his strength, drive and swashbuckling style from the back epitomised the traditional values of Tipperary hurling. He represented the town of Thurles and his family with great honour throughout his playing days.

He stands tall amongst the greats of the historic game.

We wish Padraic well.
