Colm Bonnar Named New Tipperary Senior Hurling Boss.

Tipperary native and former county player Colm Bonnar has been officially named as the new Tipperary senior hurling manager. This confirmation, identifying a suitable replacement for outgoing manager Mr Liam Sheedy, follows a meeting of the Tipperary’s County management committee on last night.

Previous successes:
Bonnar oversaw Carlow’s progression to the Leinster SHC for two seasons; winning the McDonagh Cup, Christy Ring Cup and Division 2A league crown during his successful incumbency.

The Cashel native, together with former Tipperary and Waterford hurler Andy Moloney, Bonnar also guided Ballyhale to All-Ireland honours in 2015.

Having served three years as “Yellow Bellies” (Wexford) manager, Bonner has previously also been involved in management teams in his native county and Co. Waterford.

Playing Career:
As a player on the field, Bonnar won a minor All-Ireland in 1982; an under-21 title in 1985; and senior All-Ireland titles in both 1989 and 1991, with his brothers Cormac and Conal with Tipperary.

In 1991 he captained the Cashel team which won Tipperary and Munster club honours.

We wish Colm every success in his future roll.

Other Sports News:
We also wish success to five-time ‘All-Star’ Brendan Cummins who has been appointed as the under-20 manager for a three-year term.
