Mixed luck for Tipperary underage hurling teams

Tipperary qualified for the finals in both the A and B All Ireland u-16 tournament run in the South Tipperary division last Saturday.

Unfortunately they lost to old rivals Kilkenny in the A final and Cork in the B final.

The A final was particularly disappointing as Kilkenny scored 2 goals in the last minute to secure a 2 point victory by 2-4 to 0-8.

Joe Tuohy, Secretary of the sponsoring Tipperary Supporters Club, presented the John Doyle Memorial Cup to the Kilkenny captain.

Well done to Bord na nOg, the host clubs in South Tipperary and all involved with running this important tournament.

Congratulations to the Tipperary under 15 hurlers on winning the Carrigdhoun tournament by defeating host county Cork by 4-11 to 2-4 in the final. Commiserations to the A and B teams in the Tony Forristal tournament in Waterford. Although unsuccessful they represented the county well.
