Next Sunday November 3 is the biggest day in the County’s club footballing calendar when the Clean Ireland Recycling senior football championship final takes place at Semple Stadium with a 2.30pm throw-in.
The final will be refereed by Derek O’Mahoney of Ardfinnan. Aherlow Gaels are an amalgamation of Aherlow and Lattin-Cullen and will be seeking their first title in this form.
However, Aherlow have won the title on two previous occasions, 2010 when they defeated Loughmore Castleiney and 2006. Lattin-Cullen have never won the county title although they did win a number of West senior football championships.
Loughmore Castleiney will be seeking their 12th title having last won in 2004. They will also be attempting to become the first club to win the county senior hurling and football title double. Irrespective of the result, Loughmore Castleiney will represent Tipperary in the AIB Munster club senior football championship as amalgamations are not allowed play in the competition. With so much at stake and 3 passionate clubs involved, it should be a game worth seeing so we would encourage as many as possible to attend. The O Riain (New) Stand only will be open for the game and admission prices are €10 for adults, €5 for OAPs and students with id and under 16s free.
