Former Tipperary hurling manager Michael Ryan
FORMER Tipperary senior hurling manager Michael Ryan has been appointed as the new Na Piarsaigh hurling manager.
The appointment was rubber stamped this Monday night at a club meeting.
Ryan, who departed Tipperary last August, will have former Galway and Loughrea hurler Nigel Shaughnessy as coach.
Na Piarsaigh clubman PJ Breen will be a selector.
Ryan, a Drombane-Upperchurch club-man, who won Liam MacCarthy Cup title as a player in 1991, was appointed as the Tipperary boss in 2015 after serving as a selector under both Eamon O'Shea and Liam Sheedy.
Ryan guided the Premier County to an All-Ireland title in his first season in charge in 2016.
Ryan and Shaughnessy take over from Paul Beary, who served as Na Piarsaigh manager for one season - winning the 2018 Limerick SHC.
