The big game of the week on the South Tipperary GAA scene is the clash of holders St. Marys and Moyle Rovers in the Martins Fruit & Veg Intermediate Hurling championship.
The match will be played in Goatenbridge on Friday evening at 7-30 p.m. and a splendid contest is anticipated.
Moyle Rovers drew with Ballybacon-Grange last weekend and will have high hopes of upsetting the champions. In the same competition Cahir will face Fr. Sheehys at the same venue on Saturday evening also at 7-30 p.m.
A number of ties in the John Quirke Jewellers junior hurling (A) competition will be staged. On Saturday evening Ballingarry will oppose Moyle Rovers in Fethard whilst Cloneen will house an interesting clash between C.J. Kickhams, Mullinahone and Clonmel Og. On Monday evening in Ned Hall Park the teams in opposition will be Ballylooby/Castlegrace and Kilsheelan/Kilcash and this could prove to be one of the top ties of the week. All three junior hurling (A) games will commence at 7 p.m.
The Chadwicks Minor Hurling championship is hotting up and three games listed for Wednesday evening of next week should be well worthy of support. Skeheenarinky will face a difficult task against St. Marys in Goatenbridge, Moyle Rovers and Kilsheelan Gaels should provide fine entertainment in Ned Hall Park and the local derby between C.J. Kickhams, Mullinahone and Ballingarry in Cloneen is sure to draw the crowds.
In a week of predominantly hurling ties, football followers will be interested in the Garrabridge JFCA clash between Ardfinnan and Newcastle in Clogheen on Monday at 7 p.m.
On Sunday at noon three games in what is proving a well contested Europlan Junior (B) hurling championship are down for decision. Both Clonmel sides will be in action with Clonmel Og facing Cahir in Goatenbridge and St. Marys tackling Clerihan in Fethard. In the remaining game St. Patricks will tackle Ballylooby/Castlegrace in Ned Hall Park. All teams will have a better idea of how they are faring after Sunday’s results.
