Liam Cahill Is Staying With Waterford
Big news coming from Waterford this afternoon as it has been confirmed that Liam Cahill will stay on as senior hurling manager for a further 12 months.
The Tipperary native had been heavily linked with the job in the Premier County, after the retirement of Liam Sheedy this year.
A statement from Liam Cahill statement reads:
“Since the Tipperary senior hurling managers role became vacant almost two weeks ago there has been widespread speculation surrounding the position. I have been the central focus of much of this speculation, so I think the time is now appropriate for me to clarify my position and allow both Tipperary and Waterford County Boards move ahead with their plans for next year.
“To be ever associated with the position of Tipperary senior hurling manager is a huge honour and I am extremely grateful to the County Board for their recent approaches in this regard. We discussed various matters and I can honestly say that making this decision has been the most difficult one I have had to make in recent years.
“For now, my commitment is to the Waterford senior hurling team where Mikey Bevans and I feel we have a sense of unfinished business. We made significant progress in the past two years but we feel that there is still more to come from this incredible bunch of players.
“Finally, I would like to wish the new Tipperary senior hurling manager the very best of luck in his new endeavors.”
