  • Brendan Maher (born 5 January 1989) is an Irish hurler who currently plays as a midfielder for the Tipperary senior team. Born in Borrisoleigh, County Tipperary, Maher first excelled at hurling in his youth. He played at juvenile levels with the Borris-Ileigh club before later enjoying some success at St. Joseph's College, Borrisoleigh. Maher simultaneously became a member of the Borris-Ileigh senior team, winning North Tipperary championship medals in 2005 and 2007. Maher made his debut on the inter-county scene at the age of sixteen when he joined the Tipperary minor team. After little success in his debut year, he won an All-Ireland medal in 2006 having been earlier defeated in the Munster Championship. Still eligible for the grade in 2007, Maher collected a second All-Ireland medal and a first Munster medal as captain of the team. That same year he began the first of four seasons with the under-21 team, culminating with the winning of an All-Ireland medal in 2010. Maher made his senior debut during the 2009 league and immediately became a regular member of the team. An All-Ireland medal winner in 2010, he has since won a second All-Ireland medal as captain of the team in 2016. Maher has also won five Munster medals, two All-Stars and was named Young Hurler of the Year in 2010. Maher has also been selected on several Munster inter-provincial teams. He won his sole Railway Cup medal as captain of the side in 2013. At international level Maher has represented Ireland in the shinty-hurling international series. Selected for duty in 2011 and 2013, he has claimed two winners' medals in the competition. (en)
