From Ger Ryan, County Board PRO
GAA followers in Tipperary and beyond were surprised and shocked to hear on Thursday last that Liam Sheedy, Eamon O’Shea and Michael Ryan were stepping won as the Tipperary senior hurling management team, having completed 3 successful years which culminated in Tipperary’s magnificent All Ireland senior hurling championship victory this year. The County Board had offered to appoint all 3 for another 2 years. However, due to various personal and work commitments, the management team informed the Board that, much to their regret, it was not possible for them to continue. Tipperary County Board is deeply grateful to Liam, Eamon and Michael for the excellent job they did while in charge of the senior hurling team. They brought extraordinary ability, commitment, pride and passion to their roles and they built a team that exhibited the same characteristics. They worked tirelessly on behalf of the team for the last 3 years. No words can express our deep sense of gratitude to and admiration for them.

While we are deeply disappointed with their decision, we totally respect it and we know it was a difficult one for them to make. We wish them and their families every success for the future and we look forward to them being able to make further contributions to the GAA in Tipperary. They have left Tipperary hurling in a very strong position and have established an extremely solid base on which to build future success. The County Board will now begin a process to appoint a new management team. A special committee comprising the County Chairman, Vice-Chairman, Secretary, Treasurer, PRO and the 4 Divisional Chairmen will be responsible for selecting the new management. They will recommend their choice to the County Executive and the County Board for approval. It is expected that the selection process will take several weeks at least.
