Tipperary hurling boss Liam Sheedy he’s confident this year’s split season can work for both club and inter-county players.

2021 is set to see the inter-county campaign concluded by mid-July, with the club window open from July 24th onwards.

Sheedy is behind the idea and hopes that the Coronavirus vaccine will see a return to crowds at matches across the country.

“From that perspective, you can put the full focus on the inter county season and when that finishes then they’ve got the chance to go back and wear their club jersey," he told Tipp FM.

“So, hopefully I think it will work well for everyone.

“As I said, please God this vaccine starts to kick in over the next few days and hopefully we might get some crowds back either later on in the year or definitely as the vaccine starts to make its way across the country, maybe we might have some people that will get to see the club matches at the second half of the year which I think would be a great lift for everyone.”
