Bringing Back Liam recounts the return of two Liams, Liam Mccarthy and Liam Sheedy, to Tipperary in 2019, in what was an extraordinary year for Tipperary hurling.
Having arisen from the doldrums descended to twelve months previously, the Premier County ascended the steps of the Hogan Stand on All-Ireland Final day to claim the Liam McCarthy Cup for the third time in a decade, after an emotional roller-coaster season.
It was quite a stunning return to the summit, as Tipperary scaled their Everest to reach the Holy Grail for the 28th time. There in the trenches, plotting the journey, navigating the difficult terrain, and charting Tipperary’s rise to glory, was the man who came back – Liam Sheedy.
Bringing Back Liam is the account of how Sheedy defied all who told him that comebacks never end well. This is how he put the team together, on and off the field, to deliver the ultimate prize. This is the story of the Premier’s hurling renaissance.
This is Tipperary Bringing Back Liam.
