Pat Henderson (born 30 January 1943 in Johnstown, County Kilkenny, Ireland) is an Irish retired hurling manager and former player.
Regarded as one of the greatest players of his generation, Henderson enjoyed a successful playing career at club level with Fenians and at inter-county level with Kilkenny. He was a centre-back on the latter team from 1964 until 1978, winning five All-Ireland titles, eight Leinster titles and two National Hurling League titles. Henderson has also been the recipient of many awards and honours off the field. In 1974 he was presented with the prestigious Texaco Hurler of the Year award. He also collected two All-Star awards.
Immediately after retiring from inter-county hurling Henderson became involved in team management. He served as manager of the Kilkenny senior hurling team at various intervals between 1979 and 1987 and guided the county to three All-Ireland titles, five Leinster titles and three National League titles.
