At club level he won eight championship medals, playing with a host of clubs including Croom, Garda and Toomevara. With Ireland Howard won two Tailteann Games medals, while he also represented his country in shinty. His retirement came following the conclusion of the 1936 championship. In retirement from playing, Howard became involved in team management and coaching. At inter-county level he guided Clare to an Oireachtas Cup as well as a first Munster final appearance in seventeen years. At club level he trained Feakle and Burgess-Kildangan. Howard also served as a club referee. Howard is widely regarded as one of the greatest hurlers in the history of the game. He was the third recipient of the All-Time All-Star Award in 1982. He also holds the record of being the only Limerick man to have won five All-Ireland medals. (en)
