The centre forward of the last 15 years, as voted by our judging panel, is Kilkenny's Henry Shefflin.

The Ballyhale Shamrocks clubman was the unanimous choice of all of our listeners in this position.

Henry Shefflin is to put it simply, the greatest hurler of all time.

He's won 9 All Ireland senior medals on the field of play, and will set a new record if he collects his 10th should the Cats beat Tipperary in the 2014 final at Croke Park on Sunday.

King Henry has won more All Stars at centre forward than any other position.

He has won 11 All Stars in total. A record.

The 35 year old has been Hurler of the Year three times, in 2002, 2006 and 2012. A record.

Henry Shefflin has scored 27 goals and 484 points in the All Ireland Hurling Championship. A record.

From his debut season in 1999, Shefflin made 62 successive Championship appearances for Kilkenny.

As a hurler, Henry Shefflin has brought everything to the arena - deadly accuracy, an eye for goal, physical strength, movement, composure and intelligent reading of the game.

As a sportsman, leader and role model, he's been a credit to not only the GAA, but also to the country.

Congratulations to Eddie Cox who picked Henry and who has won the county jersey of his choice.

Tomorrow we will reveal the left half forward on the 15 for 15.
