The Borrisileigh clubman sees this as a unique opportunity and one that he could not possibly turn down: “”The whole thing came as a bit of a shock to me. I thought Tony had done a great job. When I was offered it I was bit shocked and a bit worried if I’d be able for, but I thought, hurling is hurling, it’s not rocket science and I’d give it a go.
McGrath went to say. “”The talent is certainly there. We beat Wexford this year and they’re the All-Ireland Champions. We’ve got a huge amount of experience in the squad; yet the girls are still young, just look at Philly Fogarty and Claire Grogan and what they’ve achieved at their age. There’s also players coming through like Cora Hennessy, so the future is very bright for camogie in Tipperary.””
McGrath is expected to meet up the team early in the New Year in preparation for the National Senior Camogie League which begins in February.
