The two-time All-Ireland winner was appointed as U20 boss last week, succeeding John Devane, with Tipperary county board also confirming that Colm Bonnar as the new senior manager.

Speaking to Tipp FM Sport, Cummins, who has been involved the Laois and Kerry set-ups in recent years, is very much optimistic for next season.

“When John Devane – who has done a fantastic job the last couple of years in a really difficult it has to be said under Covid – stepped away I just thought this is an opportunity that I have to try to take.

“So, I contacted the County Board and said I’d like to be considered role, spoke to them and thankfully they’ve given me the nod.”

“I think Tipperary hurling is in a great place – during the summer there’s been a lot of negativity about it – but I think it’s time to stand up and do something so that’s why I’m now delighted to be involved in the coming years.”
