Throughout his career Cunningham made 50 championship appearances, a Cork record for a goalkeeper until it was surpassed by Donal Óg Cusack on 29 May 2011. He announced his retirement from inter-county hurling on 15 January 1999. Cunningham is widely regarded as one of the greatest hurling goalkeepers in the history of the game. Throughout his career he won four All-Star awards as well as Texaco Hurler of the Year in 1986. He has been repeatedly voted onto teams made up of the sport's greats, including as goalkeeper on the Cork Hurling Team of the Century in 2000 and on a special Munster Hurling Team (1984–2009).
