  • (For the Dublin hurler of the 1940s, see Frank Cummins (Dublin hurler). For the Australian rules footballer, see Frank Cummins (footballer).) Frank Cummins (born 9 November 1947) was an Irish hurler who played as a midfielder for the Kilkenny senior team. Born in Knocktopher, County Kilkenny, Cummins first excelled at Gaelic games whilst at school in Belcamp College. He arrived on the inter-county scene at the age of seventeen when he first linked up with the Kilkenny minor team, before later joining the under-21 side. He made his senior debut in the 1966 Oireachtas Cup. Cummins went on to play a key part for Kilkenny for almost two decades, and won seven All-Ireland medals, nine Leinster medals and three National Hurling League medals. He was an All-Ireland runner-up on two occasions. As a member of the Leinster inter-provincial team at various times throughout his career, Cummins won six Railway Cup medals. At club level he began his career with Knocktoper before later joining Blackrock with whom he won three All-Ireland medals, five Munster medals and six championship medals. Throughout his career Cummins made 49 championship appearances. His retirement came following Kilkenny's defeat in the 1985 championship. Cummins is widely regarded as one of the greatest hurlers in the history of the game. Throughout his career he won four All-Star awards as well as Texaco Hurler of the Year in 1983. He has been repeatedly voted onto teams made up of the sport's greats, including at midfield on the Kilkenny Hurling Team of the Century in 2000. (en)
