Sheedy To Be Recommended For Ratification As Tipp Hurling Manager

A regular pundit on TV’s ‘The Sunday Game’, combined with his employment at a leading financial institution, Mr Liam Sheedy looks set to make a sensational return to the post of Tipperary Hurling Manager, some eight years after having resigned in the wake of his 2010 All-Ireland Senior Hurling Championship success.

It is widely expected that the 48-year-old Mr Sheedy will be recommended for full ratification at next Monday night’s county board meeting, thus succeeding Mr Michael Ryan, latter who resigned last month in the wake of a disastrous season with Tipperary.

All-Ireland U-21-winning manager Mr Liam Cahill and the former All-Ireland-winning minor boss, Mr Willie Maher, had been identified as possible clear frontrunners to fill this vacancy, previous to the appearance of the rather unexpected candidature of Mr Sheedy, latter who only showed an interest in the role in recent days.

We understand that Mr Sheedy, a native of the village of Portroe in north Co. Tipperary met with Tipperary officials in the Horse and Jockey Hotel, Thurles, in recent days and will now be proposed for ratification as the next manager of the Premier County in the coming days.
