Liam Cahill rejects comparison of Tipperary to Waterford’s 2022 season

Tipperary manager Liam Cahill rejects any suggestions that the Premier County are falling into the same trap as Waterford did in 2022

Liam Cahill is confident that his team are warming up nicely for the summer.

Tipperary have flown out of the traps in Division 1B of the Allianz Hurling League, winning four games from four. Those victories included a first win over Kilkenny in Nowlan Park in 15 years, as well as beating Dublin and Waterford.

The Premier County are already assured of a Division 1 semi-final berth, and at present look to be the favourites to claim springtime honours.

Of course, Cahill led the Déise County to a league title last year. But the Suir-siders then fell apart in the championship, making a surprisingly early exit. Much of the commentary in the interim was that Waterford peaked too early in 2022 under Cahill, while other teams spent the opening few months of the year building for the summer.

When TG4’s Micheál Ó Domhnaill put the question to Cahill about any doubts about how he might prepare Tipp for the latter stages of the league, the Ballingarry man gave a firm response.

“Ah no, not at all. Winning brings confidence. As long as you can stay winning, your confidence stays there and we’ll continue to try and win every game we put on a Tipperary jersey on us,” he stated after Saturday evening’s win over Waterford.

“And you know, proof of the pudding will be in the championship to see whether I got it that wrong, that badly wrong last year. So looking forward to seeing how it goes with these boys.”

Liam Cahill and his team now finish the group stages against Antrim next weekend, before facing a Division 1A team in the semi-final.

Their Munster Championship opener is on Sunday, April 23 away to Clare in Cusack Park, Ennis.
