Seamus Callanan says he regrets not winning more All-Irelands with Tipperary.

The former Hurler of the Year, who announced his inter-county retirement in September, won three All-Ireland SHC medals in 2010, '16 and '19 in a glittering 16-year career, but feels he could have fared even better.

“I think we were unlucky not to have another two or three All-Irelands on the belt,” he said on The Game on Sunday podcast.

“The one that stands out to me most is probably the Galway match in the All-Ireland semi-final in 2015 where we lost by a point. I just felt that year we had an unbelievable team. I just felt like we were the best team in the country at the time.

“Obviously, we didn’t go on and win it, but that’s one I look back and say, we probably might have left it behind us.

“Liam (Sheedy) as well, when we won the 2010 All-Ireland, you would have liked to know what would happened had he stayed on for two or three more years at that stage.”
