Ryan leaves Treaty post


TJ Ryan has announced his decision to step down from his position as manager of the Limerick senior hurlers.

Ryan had intimated that his time in charge of the Treaty County was at an end in the wake of his side's four-point defeat to Davy Fitzgerald's side at Semple Stadium on Saturday and after taking a couple of days to consider his option, the Garryspillane clubman has stepped down.

"I’ve given it absolutely everything, I genuinely have. I’ve thoroughly enjoyed it, I’m very grateful to the people who have allowed me the opportunity," Ryan said.

Ryan guided Limerick to an All-Ireland semi-final appearance two years ago, but the Shannonsiders have been knocked out before the quarter-finals for the last two years and they have failed to secure promotion from Division 1B of the Allianz League.

Confirming his resignation, Limerick GAA wished Ryan the very best.

"CLG Coiste Contae Luimni would like to confirm that TJ Ryan today Monday July 11th 2016 has informed the Officers of CLG Coiste Contae Luimni that he will not be going forward as Limerick Senior Hurling Manager for the 2017 Season," a statement read.

"CLG Coiste Contae Luimni would like to thank TJ for his commitment and time given over his three year term as Limerick Senior Hurling Manager.

"We would also like to wish TJ and his family the very best into the future."
