The Tipperary Supporters Club sponsored All Ireland under 16 A and B tournaments will take place next Saturday, August 31.

The group games and finals will be played in the South Division this year. The A group games will be hosted by Cahir, Moyle Rovers and Clonmel Og with St. Mary’s hosting the finals. The B group games will be hosted by Fr. Sheehy’s and Ballylooby with the final in Ballylooby. The A groups are as follows: 1) Cork, Dublin, Clare and Waterford; 2) Offaly, Wexford, Limerick, Kilkenny; 3) Galway, Tipperary, Antrim and Laois. The B groups are as follows: 1) Clare, Tipperary, Kilkenny and Kerry; 2) Galway, Cork, Wexford and Waterford. The tournaments were previously played over 2 days but under a new directive, they must be played in one day so it will certainly be an action packed Saturday around South Tipperary. We wish Bord na nOg, the participating teams and the host clubs best wishes for fine weather, good hurling and exciting games. Thanks are also due to Tipperary Supporters Club for their continued sponsorship of the event. Tipperary’s A team play their games in Cahir with the first outing against Galway at 10.30am with games to follow against Antrim at 12.15pm and against Laois at 2pm. The B team will play its group games in Ballylooby.
