Former Tipperary manager set for return to intercounty management

Former Tipperary manager set for return to intercounty management

Former Tipperary manager Liam Kearns has emerged as the frontrunner to take over from John Maughan as Offaly football manager.

While with Tipperary, Kearns led the Premier footballers to an All-Ireland semi-final in 2016. He has also been coach to Roscommon when John Evans was in charge for a brief period in 2015.
