Tribute from Tipperary Manager, Eamon O’Shea on Paul Curran’s Retirement

Tipperary manager Eamon O’Shea paid tribute to Paul Curran on his retirement from inter-county hurling.


“Paul has been a leader and inspiration for a generation of Tipperary hurlers and his contribution to Tipperary hurling  has been immense. Many great players have retired from the game in recent years, but he is amongst the very best in terms of his own personal achievements and his contribution to various Tipperary successes. More importantly, he has been the driving force for excellence and improved performance within the Tipperary squad.


He is a man of ambition, resilience and integrity who has been a major force for good within the Tipperary squad for a long time. When he came into training last night to tell  the players about his decision to retire it was an emotional time for all of us. His parting words to the squad were as inspirational as his many deeds on the pitch over the past 15 years.


I have no doubt that Paul will make many more contributions off the pitch to Tipperary hurling in the coming years”​.
