"Austin Flynn" (born 1933) is an Irish people/Irish retired hurling/hurler who played as a full-back for the Waterford GAA/Waterford senior team.
Flynn is regarded as one of Waterford's greatest players of all-time. He made his first appearance for the team during the All-Ireland Senior Hurling Championship 1952/1952 championship and eventually became a regular member of the starting fifteen until his retirement after the All-Ireland Senior Hurling Championship 1967/1967 championship. During that time he won one All-Ireland Senior Hurling Championship/All-Ireland winners' medal, three Munster Senior Hurling Championship/Munster winners' medals and one National Hurling League/National League winners' medal. He ended up as an All-Ireland runner-up on two occasions.
Flynn has a number of personal achievements including three GAA All Stars Awards/Cú Chulainn awards. He was recognised as his county's greatest full-back when he was picked in that position on the Waterford Hurling Team of the Millennium.
At club level Flynn played both hurling and Gaelic football with the Abbeyside GAA/Abbeyside but finished his career without claiming a county club championship medal.More Austin Flynn on Wikipedia.
