ALL-IRELAND WINNING captain Eoin Kelly has been added to the Tipperary senior hurling management team and will serve as a selector for Liam Sheedy in 2020. 

Kelly, who captained the Premier County to All-Ireland glory in 2010, was part of the Tipperary backroom team for the 2019 season as a free-taking coach.

Having been involved in their Liam MacCarthy triumph, he now moves into the management team where he will work alongside Tommy Dunne and Darragh Egan.

“I have a wonderful relationship with Eoin going back many years,” said Tipp boss Sheedy following the appointment. 

“He brings a huge amount of experience to the management team and I am thrilled to have him on board.”

Additionally, former Tipperary manager Eamon O’Shea will be taking up the role of Performance Director with the 2019 All-Ireland SHC champions.

O’Shea comes into the new position after previously coming on board with the Tipp backroom team in a support role earlier this year.

“Eamon played a pivotal role ensuring the team was successful in 2019,” said Sheedy, “and he is hugely respected within the group.
