Tipp praise for O'Shea


Tipperary county board secretary Tim Floyd says Eamon O’Shea leaves "a positive legacy" after three years in charge of the Premier County.

O’Shea, whose three-year term as Tipp boss ended following August's All-Ireland semi-final defeat to Galway, has been replaced as manager by selector Michael Ryan.

Floyd, writing in his report to Thursday’s annual convention, says the Kilruane MacDonagh clubman was unlucky not to add the Liam MacCarthy Cup to the Munster title the county secured this summer.

“It was bitter disappointment for Eamon O’Shea,” Floyd wrote. “He commanded so much respect from the players who would dearly have loved to have delivered an All-Ireland to him.

"Those days when they were successful in playing ‘the beautiful game’ he coached, it was a joy to watch.

“He preached and instilled positivity in them and he believed so much in their talent and ability.

“I find it very frustrating trying to fathom why it failed to happen for him as he deserved success. I have never seen so much thoroughness in the preparation of a team.

“He leaves a very positive legacy behind which many managers and coached would love to have on their CV.”
