Philip "Philly" Larkin (born 1973 in Kilkenny, Ireland) is an Irish sportsperson. He plays hurling with his local club James Stephens and was a member of the Kilkenny senior inter-county team from 1996 until 2003.[1]


Born in the famous 'village' area of Kilkenny, Larkin was a member of the famous Larkin hurling dynasty. His father Phil, known as 'Fan' Larkin, won five All-Ireland medals with Kilkenny in a career that spanned seventeen seasons. Larkin's grandfather, Paddy, and his grand-uncle, Mick, featured on the Kilkenny team throughout the 1930s and collected final All-Ireland titles between them.
