Pride of place this week goes to Cashel Youths who returned from Dublin last weekend as All Ireland shield champions after Tipperary sent three teams to Dublin.

All fifteen players were brilliant over three days of darts. After the group stages our B team finished in the semi final of the cup where they played Waterford but went down to a score of 3-1.

The lads had chances but luck deserted them. After the groups the A and C teams finished in the shield competition, the C team faced a very strong Kildare team and went down 3 nil, but this was a great result as this is a very young team, with most of them still only 11-12 years of age.

The A team played Sligo in the other semi final. This was to go down to the 5th and final leg where Stephen Roche was to prove their hero.

The final was to take place on the stage in front of a large crowd and Tipperary played some brilliant darts and came out on top with a score of 3-1 to become shield champions.

Well done to all involved - John Gearon was the manager of the winning team.

On Friday night Ger Browne and Dylan Bennett were unlucky when they just failed in the final of the doubles All Ireland.

The county Board would like to thank all the teams, two men and two women and the three youths teams and all the officers who travelled for all the hard work over the weekend, and with all the work which is being done and the talent which is coming through from youth level good days lay ahead.

Tipperary Masters

Tipperary has some very good players in the county at the moment and a steady stream of youth players coming through which eventually will pay of.

Last Sunday a charity tournament took place in the Adagh House Hotel in Killenaule. This was in aid of the Tipp to Kenya Project, which aims to build a school in Kenya. The format was 301 double in / double out.
