Manager Michael Ryan has drafted in Stakelum to the setup where he will join Declan Fanning and John Madden as Tipperary ramp up preparations for their 2016 season. Ryan and Madden are former Tipperary teammates of Stakelum’s.

In his playing career Stakelum’s highlight for Tipperary was in 1991 when he came on as a substitute during their All-Ireland final win over Kilkenny.

He also won an All-Ireland senior club hurling medal with his native Borris Ileigh in 1987.

Tipperary began their 2016 season with a challenge match against Offaly last Sunday. They have chosen not to enter the Munster senior hurling league this month and their first competitive game will take place with an Allianz league opener at home to Dublin on 13 February.

Stakelum’s coaching experience has seen him manage Borris Ileigh in the Tipperary senior county championship in recent years while he has also been involved at juvenile level with Durlas Óg in Thurles.
