Tipperarys participation in this seasons All Ireland camogie championship hangs in the balance as a stand off has emerged between the Premier county panel and Tipp county board, following Wednesdays axing of team manager Eoin Kennedy.
News of the Borrisoleigh man’s exit broke on Wednesday night and it was confirmed yesterday by a county board statement released by PRO Jim Symons.
It read: “At a fully county board meeting, it was decided by officers and clubs to remove the manager of the Tipperary senior camogie team as a result of ongoing difficulties between the manager and the county board.
“It is hoped that we have a new manager in place as soon as possible.”
However,it appears Kennedy retains the backing of the players and it remains to be seen what action they may take in support of him. There are suggestions they may withdraw services similar to the stance recently taken by a number of the county’s senior ladies footballers.
Kennedy was only appointed in January, succeeding Conor Ryan following schools success in Tipperary, Offaly and Cork.
