Richie Hogan summed up Henry Shefflin's retirement with the tweet of the day
"Awwwww! Awwwwww! Awwwww!"
That was the reaction of one of the SportsJOE team this afternoon when they saw Richie Hogan paying respect to the great Henry Shefflin.
While there was plenty of plaudits, countless tributes and more than a few jokes on Twitter this afternoon, nobody nailed the mood quite as well as Hurler of the Year Richie Hogan, who tweeted the most simple, and heartbreaking message about The King.
Whether it's an actual screenshot of the Kilkenny team's What'sApp group, or just one he created himself, Hogan's tweet perfectly captures the mood in the marble city right about now.

I swear, I'm not crying. I just have something in both of my eyes.
