Tipperary Senior Managers for 2019 Confirmed

Tonight, the Tipperary County Board have confirmed the managers of our senior teams for 2019 and they are sure to have Premier fans thrilled in anticipation of the new year ahead

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.”
