O'Shea returns to assist Tipperary hurlers


By Cian O'Connell

Tipperary GAA has released a statement confirming that Eamon O'Shea will act in a support role for the senior hurling team for the 2019 Championship.

O'Shea, who was a key figure in Liam Sheedy's coaching set up when the blue and gold outfit won the 2010 All Ireland title, also managed Tipperary for three years.

Widely regarded as one of the most innovative coaches in the game it is a significant addition for Sheedy.

“Eamon was one of the first people I talked to when it came to considering stepping back into this role again and we have remained in close contact since," Sheedy says.

"He is a passionate Tipperary man and having him on board at any level is a great boost.”

John Devane, Tipperary County Board Chairman, is also hugely encouraged about the development.

“This is a positive development for our hurling squad," Devane admits.

"Eamon O’Shea has been a central figure in the evolution of Tipperary hurling over the past decade. While his involvement will be limited due to work commitments, the expertise and experience he will bring to the mix, even in a supporting role, will be invaluable.”
