Michael 'Brick' Walsh has committed to a 16th season with Waterford's senior hurlers.

Deise manager Derek McGrath confirmed the news this evening in an interview with WLR FM after speculation had been rife over the 35-year-old's inter-county future.

Since making his senior debut with Waterford in 2003, the Stradbally clubman has won three Munster titles, two National League and four All Star awards and is very much viewed as a a special breed of hurler that has given tremendous service to his county.

McGrath stated last week that he was "hopeful" Walsh would be involved in his squad in 2018, and it now seems that the veteran forward will be at his disposal once more as the Deise County look to go one better next season and take home the Liam MacCarthy Cup for the first time since 1959.
