7 Possible Reasons Why Henry Shefflin Has Called Today's Press Conference

7 Possible Reasons Why Henry Shefflin Has Called Today's Press Conference
By Mark Farrelly Updated

Henry Shefflin has announced he'll be making a statement at 12pm today and immediately everyone has assumed he will be announcing his retirement. But what if that's not case?

We're taking a look at some of the other possible reasons Shefflin has called this presser.

1. Fantastic news Dougal!

Likelihood: 10% chance. 

Fairly unlikely given that he's already married.

2. He's following in Jackie Tyrell's footsteps

Likelihood: 20%

After Jackie Tyrell wowed some baseball folk during The Toughest Trade, it wouldn't come as a huge surprise if the MLB starting poaching our best and brightest.

3. He's running for office

Likelihood: 35%

In all seriousness we mightn't be too far wrong come the end of the year. We're not sure if Shefflin has much interest in politics but if he ran in the next general election he'd surely top the poll.


4. He's signing for Real Madrid


Likelihood: 5%

Fresh from another defeat at the hands of Barcelona, a desperate Real Madrid turn to Eamon Dunphy for advice. He points them in the direction of one man.

5. He's transferring to Kildare

Likelihood: 1%

Henry Shefflin is joing Coill Dubh, I'm sure of it. Sure why wouldn't he. I know he works in Kilkenny City but who could resist the club where all would-be hurling stars end up?


6. He's moving to Japan

Likelihood: 3%

This is actually more realistic than the Kildare idea. Henry Shefflin is so popular in Japan that he features in their geography books. Perhaps someone's roped him in for a show-and-tell.

7. He's debuting a new girlfriend

Likelihood: 8%

Fed up of all the attention these rugby girlfriend debuts are getting, Henry might be deciding it's time to bring the chat back to hurling. Again, the whole him having a wife thing makes this a bit of a stretch.
