Callanan primed for competitive league campaign


Hurler of the Year 2019 Seamus Callanan is primed and ready for the new GAA season.

Speaking to eir sport, the Tipperary star forward said he is expecting the league to be very competitive this year with several counties in with a chance of silverware. 

The 2019 All-Ireland winner also revealed that there is plenty of competition for places in the Tipperary panel with some very talented youngsters coming through. 

As regards the Premier County's chances of adding to their record 19 league titles following their championship triumph in 2019, he is taking nothing for granted.

"The new year comes around and you join the chasing pack again," he said. "Everyone is back on a level pegging."
