|Irish name||Liam Griofain|
|Born||Shanballymore, County Cork|
Griffin played his club hurling with his local club in Shanballymore and enjoyed some success. After defeat in two county finals in 1948 and 1950, he won a county intermediate championship title with Shanballymore in 1951.
Griffin's inter-county career was a short one, however, he enjoyed much success. After a period in the wilderness the Cork team bounced back in 1952 with Griffin capturing a Munster winners' medal following a defeat of three-in-a-row All-Ireland champions Tipperary in the provincial decider. Dublin provided the opposition in the subsequent All-Ireland final, however ‘the Dubs’ were completely outclassed by Cork on that occasion. In spite of only leading by three points at half-time Cork won by 2-14 to 0-7 and picked up an All-Ireland winners' medal. Griffin's inter-county hurling career came to an end following this triumh.
