Maher named Tipperary captain

Brendan Maher will captain the Tipperary senior hurling squad for 2016.

Maher has skippered the side for each of the last two years and he will retain the position for next season, with Pádraic Maher confirmed as his vice-captain.

Meanwhile, John O'Dwyer believes 2015 proved to be a disappointing campaign for the Premier County despite winning the Munster title.

Tipperary were crowned provincial champions for the first time since 2012 but they just missed out on a place in the All-Ireland SHC final when they found Galway too good in the semi-final and O'Dwyer admit sit was a disappointing end to the season.

"Ah it was disappointing generally, we won the Munster title so we were obviously happy with that but we were disappointed then with the way we played against Galway," O'Dwyer is quoted as saying in the Irish Examiner.

"We feel we kind of let ourselves down.

"Only one or two lads kind of played well on the day. But it's all over and done with now. It's onto 2016 and that year gone has just got to be forgotten about."

Tipperary have been hit by a number of retirements since the end of the season with Lar Corbett, Shane McGrath, Conor O’Mahoney and James Woodlock all calling it a day.

While he was not surprised to see them go, O'Dwyer admits the players will be a big loss to the squad.

"Some of them anyway, I kind of had a fair idea about one or two (opting to leave). They’re going to be savage losses but we’ve plenty of young lads coming through that are going to step up to the plate," he said.

"We’ll see how it goes, those lads are going to have to step up now with a couple of those players gone but that’s how it goes, that’s the evolution."
