All-Ireland-winning manager Michael Ryan has been ratified for a second term in charge of the Tipperary hurlers tonight.

Ryan, whose initial two-year tenure ended following an All-Ireland semi-final defeat to Galway last month, has been given a three-year extension, with Declan Fanning continuing as coach, while John Madden and Conor Stakelum remain as selectors.

The former Tipperary player delivered an All-Ireland title in his first year as manager in 2016, having previously been a selector under both Eamon O'Shea and Liam Sheedy.

It was also confirmed that Liam Kearns will stay on as the Tipperary football manager, with the Kerry native agreeing a new two-year term with the county board.

The Tipperary County Board also confirmed the appointment of Liam Cahill as U20 hurling manager, Tommy Dunne as minor hurling manager, David Power as U20 football manager and Matt O'Doherty as minor football manager.
