Even to his greatest players, the men with whom he built a history unrivalled in the stockpiling of silver, Brian Cody had a stark, unknowable quality.

The most celebrated manager in the history of the GAA kept an invisible barrier up, setting fires in their ribcages without ever allowing them, emotionally, beyond the garden gate. That was his unyielding stamp as the man who led Kilkenny hurlers to a scarcely credible 11 senior All-Ireland titles between 2000 and 2015.
