Tipperary hosts the U-16 tournaments and this year a major change has been imposed upon us resulting from a ruling from Croke Park. For the past quarter of a century all our league rounds and semi finals took place on Saturday with the finals being staged on Sunday and due to the large number of participating counties it had worked very well.

Over the past number of years our finals were played in Semple Stadium which was greatly appreciated by the finalists. However this year we are duty bound to complete the entire action on Saturday. This in turn put a sea change to the format of our programme with the games being made shorter, teams having less break time and no final in the Stadium.

The games this year are being hosted within the South division within the Clonmel catchments area; the various venues will be published within the coming week or two.

We wish all our various team managements and panels all the best as they are in preparation mode.
