The best right half back of the last 15 years, as voted by our judging panel, is Kilkenny's Tommy Walsh.

When we talk about the greatest hurlers of all time, Tommy Walsh has to be part of the conversation.

Easily recognisable by his red helmet, the Tullaroan clubman was in the All Ireland winning panel of 2002 before bursting onto the scene the following year, scoring three points in the final victory over Cork.

He would win an All Star in midfield that year, the first of nine successive All Stars awards, which is a record.

By the time Kilkenny began their 4 in a row charge in 2006, Walsh was firmly established in the half back line.

He has been one of the first names on Brian Cody's team sheet in arguably the best hurling team we have ever seen.

Tommy Walsh has immense skill, is great in the air, has finesse, is a natural ground hurler and his never say die competitiveness mirrors Kilkenny's will to win.

His hurler of the year award in 2009 was a fitting reward for his efforts in the black and amber.

Congratulations to Grainne Daly who picked Tommy and who has won the county jersey of her choice.

On Monday we will reveal the centre back on the 15 for 15.
