He won a Munster Minor Football Championship medal in 1995, a Munster and All Ireland Minor Hurling medal in 1996 and a Munster U-21 Hurling medal in 1999 as well as a McGrath Cup medal in 2003 and was awarded the Munster footballer of the year award for that same year. He also won 2 Fitzgibbon Cup medals. Browne captained Tipperary to win the 2005 Tommy Murphy Cup.[3] In 2007, he announced his retirement from the inter-county scene, following Tipperary's defeat by Clare in the Tommy Murphy Cup.[4]
