Dublin All-Ireland winning forward added to Tipperary football panel

THE TIPPERARY FOOTBALLERS have added Dublin All-Ireland senior and U21 winning forward Philip Ryan to their panel for the 2021 season.

Hailing from the St Brigid’s club, Ryan started at full-forward — and scored a point — in the 2012 All-Ireland U21 final win over Roscommon, while he was on Jim Gavin’s panel for the 2015 senior decider victory against Kerry.

That was Ryan’s only year involved in senior matchday squads for championship, though he was part of league-winning panels for four consecutive years; from 2013 to 2016.

It’s reported that he is a relative of Dinny Ryan, who won an All-Ireland senior hurling medal with Tipperary in 1971.

Former Dublin footballer Philip Ryan is going really well for Tipp in training. He has plenty of Tipp heritage with the great Dinny Ryan-who scored the winning goal in the 1971 All Ireland hurling final-among family members delighted Philip is part of the Tipp set up!! #football

Ryan’s is certainly an eye-catching name on the Tipperary senior football panel, which was released by manager David Power this evening.

Conor Bowe and Greg Henry are the other newcomers this year, with young guns Paddy Creedon, Kuba Beban and Sean O Connor all included for the league.
