The long-serving Padraic Maher took his time in deciding whether or not he would commit to the Tipperary cause for another year.
Happy with his club form, the Thurles Sarsfields man decided to stay on for a 14th year as new manager Colm Bonnar’s reign gets underway.
“I was going to play out the club campaign first to see how I felt, to see whether I was playing to the level I need to be playing at. I was happy enough,” he said in an interview with GAA.ie.
“I felt physically great, mentally great and was showing good form on the pitch.
“I still feel I have something to offer the group in some capacity. I wouldn't be going back if I didn't think that. I don't want to be getting in the way of any off the younger lads.
“There is still something in my heart and in the back of my mind that I have something to offer. I'll give it another crack.”Tweet
