One more year: Eamon O’Shea announces resignation but not just yet

Assistant Michael Ryan to replace Tipperary boss after 2015 season.

He could hardly walk away now.

Tipperary hurling manager, Eamon O’Shea, has announced that he will step down from his position, but will give it one more lash before he does.

The county board confirmed that O’Shea, who has been in charge of Tipp since 2012, will remain in place for one further season and that a recommendation for assistant manager Michael Ryan to succeed O’Shea will be discussed at a meeting next week.

Tipp were at the wrong side of another classic All-Ireland final replay last month when Kilkenny edged them out at the second time of asking and, after mulling over his future since, Eamon O’Shea just couldn’t leave without one more push.

The Premier County haven’t brought Liam McCarthy home since 2010 but they are closer than ever and O’Shea must think so too.

Hey, if he keeps bringing the best out of S√©amus Callanan like the vine below, we’ll not complain…
