Nicky English - dragged the Premier County into the modern era and earned ultimate honours for Tipperary in 2001

Michael Ryan - won a famous crown in 2016 while also contributing handsomely to the 2010 success

Liam Sheedy - managed Tipperary to thrilling All-Ireland titles in both in 2010 and 2019
