Tobin quits Limerick panel


Seanie Tobin has quit the Limerick senior hurling panel.

Tobin has been a member of the Treaty County panel for the last five years, but he has failed to start any of their five Allianz Hurling League Division 1B games this season.

Having been omitted from the match-day 26 for the promotion play-off against Clare at the weekend, he informed the management of his decision to withdraw from the panel.

"This decision was not easy and was not one I wanted to make but I felt it was one I had to make for various reasons that have accumulated over time,” Tobin told the Limerick Leader.

"I have given everything to Limerick over the last number of years and it's heartbreaking to walk away.

"I worked closely with Joe O’Connor since September/October training at least five if not six times a week every week up until now, on my strength and conditioning and I was in the best shape of my career,” said Tobin.

"I am not retiring. I am going back training with my club on Wednesday evening and looking forward to getting going with them. I wish the players all the best for the year ahead, they deserve the utmost respect as people and as professionals and I hope to see them perform to the best of their ability in the coming year.

"“I've spoken to a lot of the panel since my decision and they all understand that this is not something I would do lightly. I hope to wear the green and white with them lads again in the future."
