Holycross was the venue last Saturday for the County Semi Finals and Final of Peil Na nOg and despite their best efforts on the day, West Champions Arravale Rvs failed in their bid for county honours.
Having run out comfortable Semi Final winners over Inane Rvs, the County Final proved a bridge too far for Arravale as a multi talented Clonmel Commercials side emerged deserving victors with fourteen points to spare at the finish.
In the Michael Martin & Associates Tipperary sponsored U12A Football semi Finals played last Thursday, Galtee Rvs proved too good for Clonoulty/Rossmore and in what promises to be a cracking West Final will go head to head with the Kickhams who were equally impressive winners over Arravale Rvs in their Semi Final.
The P.P.O’Dwyer Hardware Dundrum sponsored U12B Football is also heading to a conclusion and into the West Final are Cappawhite who saw off the challenge of Lattin/Cullen and their opponents in the final will be Eire Og who had a six point margin semi final victory over Rockwell Rvs.
In the Kala Electrical Tipperary U12C Football League, Aherlow, Sean Treacys, Emly and the Kickhams are all in contention for West Final places and at Semi Final stage in the Fitzpatrick Printers U12D Football League are Arravale Rvs, Clonoulty/Rossmore, Rosegreen and the Kickhams.
The Galtee Rvs/Aherlow combination are setting the pace in the AIB Tipperary U16A Football Championship with Clonoulty/Rossmore and Arravale Rvs in hot pursuit while Lattin/Cullen and the Emly/Treacys combination are the pacesetters in the U16B Football League.
The Feile Na Gael Skills and Long Puck competition which took place in New Inn on Friday evening last resulted as follows,
Skills Winner - Cathal Bourke (Clonoulty/Rossmore), 2nd Paul O’Heney (Emly),
3rd Niall Heffernan (Golden/Kilfeacle).
Long Puck Winner - Sean O’Connell (Rockwell Rvs), 2nd Arnlod O’Dwyer (Eire Og), 3rd Nathan Murphy Crowe (Arravale Rvs).
