Ballyhale Shamrocks lost to Graignamanagh in the Kilkenny intermediate football league on Saturday.

Shefflin retired from inter-county hurling in March. His newly acquired free time seems to have allowed him to take up pursuits outside of hurling.

Shefflin's former Kilkenny hurling teammate David Herity - who is part of the county's football panel - was quick to offer the 37-year-old the opportunity of a trial.
