Liam Cahill has stepped down from his role’s Tipperary U20 hurling manager amid speculation that he is set to take the Waterford senior vacancy.
Having served two years with his native county’s U20 and minor sides, Cahill has decided not to extend his term.
He steered Tipp to an inaugural U20 All-Ireland title last month and also guided the Premier County to All-Ireland minor glory in 2016 before repeating the trick two years later with the U21s.
A statement from Tipperary GAA read as follows: "Through his drive and dedication, Liam has raised the bar to new heights at underage level in the county, where his passion and enthusiasm for the game was replicated by the way his various teams went about their business on the field of play.
"Tipperary County Board thank Liam and his management team profusely for the wonderful contribution they have given to the county over the years and the ensuing successes achieved as a result and wish Liam continued success in his managerial career."
County board chairman John Devane added: "Liam Cahill is a man of great honour and commitment and it was a pleasure to witness first-hand his astute attention to detail in delivering success for Tipperary.
"He steps away with a hugely impressive CV at underage level and I have no doubt he will continue to add to it in his managerial career, and I wish him every success in that. Tipperary is indebted to Liam, his wife Eimear and family, for his contribution over the past five years."Tweet
