Tipperary GAA have moved to rubbish social media rumours, following messages were circulated purporting to be from the county's senior hurling manager Liam Sheedy.
The reigning All-Ireland champions, who are heeding HSE advice after returning from Spain on Friday, were the subject of false social media claims.
"Unfortunately, at this time of crisis, some unknown individual or individuals has issued a false message doing the rounds on social media purporting to be from the Tipperary SH manager," said the county board PRO Joe Bracken in a statement.
