Liam Cahill admits he is happy for his name to be part of the conversation about the vacant Tipperary senior hurling manager's position but says has no idea whether he will be considered.

Cahill, who will manage the Premier Under 21s in Sunday's All-Ireland final against Cork, is currently the bookies' favourite to succeed Michael Ryan.

However, he revealed at yesterday's pre-final press conference that he has had "no contact from anybody in the county board," with regard to the position.

"I'm sure the people that are there to appoint the man for this role will find the right man and the right men to go with him to make sure that we'll be competitive again," Ryan stressed.

Cahill works with Top Oil in their retail division and he admitted: "It's hard to say that you can go ahead and do the thing until you talk to your employers and to my own wife number one at home, then my employers.

Anxious

"The time now (it takes) to manage inter-county teams in particular is just absolutely incredible."

"Whether I'll be in the picking list or not, I don't know but the Tipperary top brass is appointed to find that appointment and we'll just wait and see.

"I'm sure there's a lot of people out there that would be anxious for the job and maybe there's more qualified and more experienced people than me and if there are I'll have no issue with that.

"Whatever will be best for Tipperary hurling, I don't mind," he added.
