THE TIPPERARY FOOTBALLERS have added Dublin All-Ireland senior and U21 winning forward Philip Ryan to their panel for the 2021 season.

Hailing from the St Brigid’s club, Ryan started at full-forward — and scored a point — in the 2012 All-Ireland U21 final win over Roscommon, while he was on Jim Gavin’s panel for the 2015 senior decider victory against Kerry.

That was Ryan’s only year involved in senior matchday squads for championship, though he was part of league-winning panels for four consecutive years; from 2013 to 2016.

It’s reported that he is a relative of Dinny Ryan, who won an All-Ireland senior hurling medal with Tipperary in 1971.

Ryan’s is certainly an eye-catching name on the Tipperary senior football panel, which was released by manager David Power this evening.

Conor Bowe and Greg Henry are the other newcomers this year, with young guns Paddy Creedon, Kuba Beban and Sean O Connor all included for the league.

Likewise, Alan Campbell is on board, though the 2020 Munster champions will be without talismanic midfielder Liam Casey, AFL star Colin O’Riordan and the recently-retired Philip Austin this year.

Tipp open their Allianz Football League Division 3 campaign next weekend with a trip to face Limerick at LIT Gaelic Grounds.
