Cyril Farrell (born August 1 1950) is an Irish former hurling manager, selector, trainer and coach. He was the manager of the Galway senior team on three separate occasions, where he became the county's longest-serving manager and most successful in terms of major titles won. Farrell is regarded as one of the greatest managers in the history of the modern game.
After being involved in team management and coaching in all grades at club level with Tommy Larkin's, as well as with the Galway minor and under-21 teams, Farrell was appointed coach of the Galway senior team for the first time in 1979. As manager at various times over much of the following twenty years, he led Galway through a period of unprecedented national dominance, winning seven major honours. These include three All-Ireland Championships, including back-to-back titles in 1987 and 1988, two Connacht Championships and two National Hurling Leagues.
