As expected Liam Kearns will continue in his role as manager of the senior footballers, completing the second year of a deal agreed prior to 2018.
In hurling, former All-Ireland winning manager Liam Sheedy re-takes the reigns of the senior side and will be hoping to rekindle the form that saw his side capture the Liam McCarthy Cup in 2010.
Announcing the outcome of the process to find Tipperary’s new senior hurling manager, Tipperary County Board Chairman John Devane said: “We are delighted to announce Liam Sheedy will be taking over as manager of our senior hurling team. Liam brings an unrivalled mix of track-record, passion and conviction to the table. We thank him for his commitment and we look forward to providing him with the full support of the county board as we move into the 2019 season.”
“I would also like to state, on behalf of the County Board and all who support Tipperary hurling, our thanks to others who put their names forward for this post over recent weeks. We have been hugely impressed by the quality of candidate and also by their passion for Tipperary hurling. We look forward to working with them in the future.”
Said Liam Sheedy: “I am taking up the role with a huge sense of excitement and enthusiasm, mostly at the thought of getting back into the dressing-room and out on the field with Tipperary’s best.”
“I come on board again just two years after Michael Ryan led Tipperary to a superb All-Ireland title. He has handed over an incredibly talented squad that I look forward to finalising over the coming weeks and months and getting Tipperary ready for 2019.”posted by Friends of Tipperary FootballFriends of Tipperary Football on Sun Sep 09, 2018
Last night in the GAA Centre in Clonmel Pete Savage officially launched the three year strategic plan for the development of Gaelic football in the Premier county.
In what was an enjoyable occasion the night also saw a reunion of the Tipperary senior teams of 1993, ’94 and ’98 which all reached the Munster finals. This included a insightful question and answers session with Stephen Gleeson of Tipp FM as he grilled goalkeeper Philip Ryan, Seán Collum, Brian Burke, Liam Kearns and manager from the time, Seamus McCarthy.
The centre was packed to capacity with supporters and former players reminiscing about the 1990’s as well as officials from the County Board and Tipperary Football Committee.

"I think we'd have won it in 94, probably won it, if John Leahy didn't put his leg into the only hole that was in Limerick in the semi final" 😂😂

Brian has made a tremendous contribution to the senior set-up in recent years and his selfless efforts played no small role in our recent successes.
Another man who played a huge role that has decided to part ways is strength and conditioning coach David Moriarty. The Limerick man was a popular figure among the players and he had them in tip-top shape for all their games.
Thanks to both David and Brian for everything over the last few years.
Affter 3 fantastic years with the Tipperary Senior Footballers @TippfootballGAA I have to step down from my role as Selector/Performance Analyst/Coach in 2019. Amazing memories. Thanks to the Players, Liam, Management & Backroom Teams. @TipperaryGAA

On Saturday evening at the Hibernian Inn, Nenagh the Tipperary Football Committee officially launched their three year strategic plan for the future of Gaelic football within the county.
On hand to officially launch the ambitious plan was manager of the 1998 All-Ireland junior football team, Seamus McCarthy. The Tipperary Football Committee used this opportunity to have a reunion of this fabulous panel who ended the county’s 75 year wait for All-Ireland honours and all were presented with a polo-shirt kindly sponsored by the Friends of Tipperary Football.

We commiserate with the Tipperary LGFA team who were unfortunately relegated from the senior grade this weekend following their 1-14 to 2-14 defeat to Cavan on Sunday last. It has been a bitter pill to swallow for the panel as they put up very commendable performances in the championship all year and were unfortunate not to win some of their matches. They did however capture the division two league title earlier in the year which will go some way to making up for disappointment of relegation. We have not doubt, with the talent at their disposal that they will be back up again in the very near future.
