Tipperary's Michael Ryan Enacts Media Ban After Limerick Defeat

Tipperary's Michael Ryan Enacts Media Ban After Limerick Defeat
By Arthur James O'Dea Updated

After seeing his Tipperary team fall to a defeat in the first round of today's Munster Hurling Championship, Michael Ryan has made it clear that he does not intend to speak to the media for the duration of the provincial championship.

A message relayed by the county's public relations officer, Ryan will enact the media ban until Tipperary have completed their three remaining provincial ties, at the earliest.

With their four allotted games coming during the first four successive weeks of the championship, there is as yet no explanation as to why Ryan has decided to avoid his media duties.

According to Off the Ball, Ryan's silence has stretched as far as RTÉ's The Sunday Game.

Having taken over Tipperary two years ago, Ryan's silences comes after a disappointing start to Tipperary's Munster championship campaign.

Opting for an unusual starting XV ahead of the clash with Limerick, Brendan Maher, Michael Breen and Seamus Callanan were among those on the bench - although Callanan is presumed not to have been fully-fit.

After today's defeat, Ryan would be expected to come under some criticism, but seems to have opted for solitude until he feels content to speak openly.
