The Tipperary senior hurlers are looking for a new manager after it was announced that current boss Declan Ryan, coach Tommy Dunne and selector, Michael Gleeson have informed the County Board that they are stepping down as the management team and do not wish to be considered for re-appointment, having completed their two-year term.
In a statement the County Board said that it and the Tipperary senior hurling panel thank Declan, Tommy and Michael for leading Tipperary to two Munster senior hurling championship successes and their dedication and commitment in carrying out their roles during the last two years.
“All three men have made a great contribution to the GAA in Tipperary over a long number of years and we are fortunate that men of their calibre have been willing to serve the county so generously and so loyally. We acknowledge the time, effort and many personal sacrifices they and their families have made in the interests of Tipperary’s senior hurling fortunes and we firmly believe that their good work will lead to continued success for the county.
We wish them and their families well for the future and we look forward to their continued involvement with and contribution to the GAA in Tipperary.
A committee, led by County Chairman, Sean Nugent will now commence the search for a new senior hurling management team”.
