Tipperary Reviewing Liam Cahill Suspension After Limerick Red Card

Tipperary Reviewing Liam Cahill Suspension After Limerick Red Card

Tipperary are reported to be reviewing a proposed suspension for their manager Liam Cahill, after controversy on the sideline against Limerick on Sunday afternoon.

Tipp and Limerick played out a thrilling draw in Thurles to leave Tipp merely needing a win against bottom-placed Waterford to assure them of a place in this year's Munster final - but they may have to do it without Cahill, should the ban be upheld.

Tipperary receive GAA proposal to suspend Liam Cahill for four weeks

Tipperary manager Liam Cahill was issued a red card by referee Seán Stack in the closing stages of his team's draw with Limerick on Sunday afternoon.

Cahill was sent from the sidelines after arguing against a call to award a sideline ball to Limerick, with the fate of the game in the balance.

RTÉ reported on Tuesday evening that the Central Competitions Control Committee have now been in contact with the Tipperary county board with a proposed four-week suspension for Cahill in light of the incident.


The Tipperary board now have the opportunity to review the suspension and choose whether to appeal. Should the suspension be upheld, it will act as an almost blanket ban, preventing Cahill from interacting with his coaching staff or management on matchday for their final Munster round-robin game against Waterford, in line with Rule 7.5(a)(6)(b):

This involves the team official concerned being debarred from the Pitch Enclosure before and during the game and from managing, directing, assisting, or communicating with their team in any way before or during the game.

Tipp are expected to come through next week's test against Waterford - it is what potentially lies ahead that will be of greater concern to the Premier County.


Should they beat Waterford, or draw and see results go their way elsewhere, Tipperary would be through to the Munster final against Clare on June 11, with Cahill's suspension following through to that game.
