Tipperary football manager Liam Kearns has resigned from his position following his side’s defeat to Down in Sunday’s All-Ireland SFC qualifier round 1 clash at Pairc Esler.

Kearns has been in charge of Tipp since November 2015 but steps away after two disappointing defeats in as many games after they were shockingly knocked out of the Munster Championship by Limerick.

The 57-year old’s arrival ushered in a memorable era in Tipp football as he led them to the Munster final in 2016 before a historic run to the All-Ireland semi-finals in the same season.

Tipp were defeated by Mayo in what was their first trip to the last four in just over 70 years.

The following year Kearns helped his side to the Division Three title in the National League but steps away after a string of disappointing results.
