Tipperary GAA appoints Liam Sheedy as senior hurling manager.
Tipperary GAA County Board is pleased to announce the appointment of Liam Sheedy as the manager of its senior hurling squad. The 2010 All-Ireland winning manager was ratified at a meeting of the county board this evening in Thurles.
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.”
Commencing a new 3 year term, Liam Sheedy will announce his backroom team over the coming weeks.
Elsewhere, Liam Kearns will continue the second year of his 2 year term as Tipperary senior football manager while all other remaining management positions will be ratified at the October county committee meeting.
