Monaghan hurlers' fight reflects wider problem
Irish Examiner - almost 5 years

His club Trumera in Laois is predominantly a hurling club. In February, he launched the Hurling Development Plan which will see Carriganore on the ring road outside Waterford city become the base for a hurling and camogie development centre. However, it was the creation of the Táin club leagues for weaker hurling counties as well as the establishment of a nationwide network of mentors that caught the eye. Recognising that the game has no chance of flourishing in counties without the grassroots first embracing it, the hope is the Táin club league will engage players to compete at a level suited to them before taking it on to inter-county level. Borrowing a line from the GPA tutoring scheme, Tipperary’s Liam Sheedy and Eamon O’Shea working in Tyrone and Donegal will be major boost to the fortunes of b ...

    More Details Hide Details Nenagh CBS Portroe Tipperary Tipperary Munster Honours
    On 7 October 2010 it was announced that Sheedy would be stepping down from his position as Tipperary manager.
    More Details Hide Details Sheedy and his selectors, who found themselves working up to 16 hours a day during their three-year term, cited work commitments as the reason for stepping down and Sheedy thanked the board for their "top class" support.
    On 30 May, Tipperary started the 2010 Munster Championship with a quarter final defeat by Cork in Páirc Uí Chaoimh.
    More Details Hide Details Tipperary lost the game by 3–15 to 0–14, the county's biggest defeat by Cork in 68 years. After the game Sheedy was criticised over the collapse to Cork by former manager Babs Keating who said that "I think if Liam and his selectors sat down with us at that stage for a couple of hours, they needn't necessarily have taken our ideas on board, that he could have taken a few shortcuts along the way and he'd be in a better position today than he is". On 3 July, in the All-Ireland SHC phase 1 qualifier, Tipperary comfortably won by 3–24 to 0–19 against Wexford at Semple Stadium to advance to the next phase of qualifiers. In the next round on 18 July, Tipperay defeated Offaly by 0–21 to 1–12 to advance to the quarter finals. On 25 July, Tipperary met Galway in the quarter final's at Croke Park. In what was generally described as the best game of the year so far, Tipperay won by 3–17 to 3–16 with a late winning point coming from Lar Corbett. In the semi-final on 15 August at Croke Park, Tipperary defeated Munster rivals Waterford by 3–19 to 1–18 to set up a second All Ireland final in a row against Kilkenny. On 5 September, Sheedy managed Tipperary to win their 26th All Ireland title, beating reigning champions Killkenny by 4–17 to 1–18 in the final, preventing Kilkenny from achieving an historic 5-in-a-row.
    In retirement from playing, Sheedy became involved in team management and coaching at club, inter-county and inter-provincial levels. After guiding Tipperary to All-Ireland glory in the minor grade, he later guided the senior team to All-Ireland success in 2010.
    More Details Hide Details Sheedy also served as manager of the Munster inter-provincial team, while he has also acted in an advisory role with a number of different clubs. Sheedy played his club hurling with his local club in Portroe and enjoyed some success. The highlight of his club hurling career came in 1990 when he captured a county title at intermediate level. Sheedy first came to prominence on the inter-county scene in the early 1980s as a member of the Tipperary under-16 team. He won a Munster title at this level before later joining the county minor team.

  • 2009
    Age 39
    On 12 July 2009, Sheedy guided Tipperary to their second Munster title in a row with a 4–14 to 2–16 win over Waterford in Thurles.
    More Details Hide Details Tipperary went on to defeat Limerick in the All Ireland Semi-final by 6–19 to 2–7 on 16 August 2009, to set up a final meeting with Kilkenny. Sheedy revealed that his side have used the memory of the 2008 All-Ireland hurling semi-final defeat by Waterford as a motivational tool for the semi-final in 2009, he said 'There was a lot of hurt in our dressing room this time last year, 17 August was anything but a nice day and it hurt a lot of us, We waited a year to get back up here and redeem ourselves.' In the final on 6 September, Tipperary lost to Kilkenny by 2–22 to 0–23 in a match described as one of the best finals ever. After the game Sheedy commented on the game and Kilkenny saying "I felt the lads really gave it everything. We just needed a goal at some stage to really kick on, push on. We'd one or two chances, but found PJ Ryan on a very good day today, but these lads have done everything I've asked of them in last eight months, everything I could possible want them to, so to just come up short is very, very disappointing, we knew we were facing the best team in probably the history of the game".
    After the success of his first term in charge Sheedy was unanimously appointed for a second term for the 2009 season.

  • 2008
    Age 38
    Sheedy's term in charge of the Tipperary senior team got off to a good start. In early 2008 his side breezed through the Waterford Crystal Cup before defeating Waterford by 3–13 to 0–13 in the final.

Sheedy's side defeated Laois, Offaly and Limerick and drew with Galway and Clare to come second in Division 1B. The team later defeated Waterford in the quarter-final and Kilkenny in the semi-final of the competition, resulting in a league final showdown with Galway. The final was a tough, competitive game with Tipp preserving their unbeaten record in 2008 by defeating Galway on a score line of 3–18 to 3–16. Sheedy's next competitive game in charge was a Munster semi-final showdown with Cork on 8 June. The omens pointed to a Cork victory as Tipp hadn't defeated Cork in the championship in Cork since 1923. On this occasion, however, Tipp broke the hoodoo and defeated 'the Rebels' by 1–19 to 1–13. Tipperary later continued their unbeaten run with a 2–21 to 0–19 defeat of Clare in the Munster final. It was Tipp's first provincial final victory since 2001 and it gave the team a save passage into the All-Ireland semi-final. Waterford, the perennial losers at this stage of the competition over the last decade, provided the opposition on this occasion, however, it was a different story for the men from the Déise. At the full-time whistle Waterford had broken their semi-final hoodoo and defeated Tipp by 1–20 to 1–18.

    More Details Hide Details That year he lined out in his first provincial decider. Clare provided the opposition on that occasion, and Tipp lost a close and exciting game by 1–18 to 0–18. The introduction of the new 'back-door' system resulted in both Clare and Tipperary meeting for the second time in the first all-Munster All-Ireland final. The game itself was one of the best of the decade. Clare were well on top for much of the game, however, Liam Cahill and Eugene O'Neill scored twice for Tipp in the last ten minutes. John Leahy missed a goal chance in the last minute. At the full-time whistle Clare were deserving winners by a single point – 0–20 to 2–13.
