Tipperary officials are reviewing the GAA's Central Competitions Control Committee's proposal to issue a four-week suspension and a one-match ban to Senior Hurling manager Liam Cahill.

Cahill received a red card during the thrilling Munster Senior Hurling Championship match with Limerick on Sunday.

The incident occurred when a decision to award a line ball to the Treaty men enraged the Ballingarry man, with referee Seán Stack responding with his dismissal.

Following a deliberation period from the committee, the proposal was agreed upon and issued to the Tipperary board.


A statement from the Premier board confirmed receipt of the notification yesterday evening.


It read: "Tipperary GAA can confirm that notification of a proposed 4-week suspension, plus a 1-match ban, for Tipperary Senior Hurling Manager Liam Cahill was received from the Central Competitions Control Committee today.

"Tipperary GAA and Liam Cahill are now considering options and will make a decision within the timeframe allowed."

Should Tipp accept the suspension, Cahill will not be permitted to communicate or train with management or the team before or during Sunday’s Munster SHC final-round clash with Waterford.

If the 42-time Munster champions prevail against the Déise in Thurles, the same suspension applies to a final meeting with Clare on 11 June.


Undefeated in three outings this Championship, confidence is high in the Premier County following that battling draw with the reigning All-Ireland Champions Limerick.

With or without their leader, Tipperary looks forward to a throw-in time of 4:00 pm in FBD Semple Semple in Thurles, with the possibility of silverware edging ever closer for the Munster men.
