West Tipp Bord na nOg
With the Kickhams versus Galtee Rvs U16B Hurling League final along with the U15 Garda Cup Football yet to be decided, attention now focuses on the various off field activities – West/County medal presentations, West and County Bord Na nOg Conventions, Primary School Quiz and Scor Na nOg. (See below list of dates for the various functions)
Amongst the items to emerge from last week’s Bord na nOg meeting was the proposal from Co. Bord na nOg CCC that from next year forward, Divisional winners only will go forward to contest U12 County Semi Finals while on the subject of club amalgamations which presently figures prominently at senior level, provision will have to be made for Juvenile clubs to cater for a decreasing number of players at different grades.
Top of the honours list for 2012 were Cashel KC who finished the year with six Divisional titles (4 Hurling/2 Football) and the inaugural Co. U13 Hurling Garda Cup competition while their great rivals Clonoulty/Rossmore amassed four West Hurling titles plus their victory over Newport Gaels in the U14A Hurling Co Final.
Galtee Rvs are certainly laying a solid football foundation for the years ahead winning U12A, U14A and U16A West Football championships and the U12A Football Co. title while Rosegreen’s coaching structures continue to pay dividends with no fewer than 5 West titles, winning three football and two hurling titles.
Other multiple winners in 2012 included Cappawhite and the Kickhams with both collecting three hurling and one football title each.
A reminder to all clubs regarding the 2013 Tipperary Year book which is being presently prepared, named photographs of championship winning teams for inclusion in the book should be sent straight away to John Smith, Secretary, Tipperary Yearbook Committee by e-mail at email@example.com
