New Tipperary hurling manager Colm Bonnar names his selectors

Tommy Dunne, Johnny Enright and Paul Curran form impressive backroom team

New Tipperary hurling manager Colm Bonnar has announced his management team with the appointment of three selectors, Tommy Dunne, Johnny Enright and Paul Curran.

Dunne was involved as a coach with the outgoing Liam Sheedy management, which delivered an All-Ireland in 2019 and has also coached minor and Under-21 All-Ireland winning teams for the county. He captained Tipp to the 2001 Liam MacCarthy victory.

Enright is highly regarded as a coach. He worked with Meath’s hurlers and also with Nicky English’s UCD team in the Fitzgibbon Cup, which as a player he won three times with UCC. He played for Tipperary for a number of seasons from the mid-1990s.

Curran, another All-Ireland winner, is still playing with his club, Mullinahone and worked as a coach with fellow county man Darren Gleeson and the Antrim hurlers this year, helping them retain a place in Division 1 of the hurling league.

Bonnar will make further back-room appointments in the weeks ahead.
