A leading Tipperary official has called on Michael Ryan and his management team to stand down in the wake of their Munster SHC exit last Sunday.

The Examiner reports that West Tipperary chairman John O'Shea was highly critical of Ryan and his selectors in an interview with Tipperary Mid West Community Radio.

"June 10 and out of Munster and All-Ireland championships. Four games played, drew two, and lost two," he stated

"I think that management team has gone past their sell-by-date and I think they should do the decent thing and resign en bloc.

"And the sooner, the better because it isn't so many years ago when Declan Ryan was manager, after winning two Munster championships, and the media in Tipperary were roaring for his resignation.

"Overall, there were a lot of decisions that weren't the right ones."
