The news of the passing of a great clubman and stalwart Jim Kerwick, cast a shadow over the club this weekend.
Jim tended the playing fields of Spafield for over 25 years with a dedication and commitment that was to his great credit.
A generation of players and members passed through the club during his tenure, all now with their own memories of a good friend and supporter. In his memory a minute’s silence was observed before Cashel’s encounter with Suttonions at Station Road on Saturday afternoon.
The club also formed a guard of honour for the removal of Jim’s remains from Devitt’s Funeral Home on Sunday evening and escorted the hearse through the town on its way to Dualla church, burial took place after requiem mass on Monday to the adjoining cemetery.
The Club wishes to express their deepest sympathy to Jim’s family and friends at this sad time.

Cashel began their Division 2B league campaign away to the Dublin side Suttonions last Saturday and in wet and blustery conditions they came away the victors.
Through sheer forward dominance the Tipperary side were always in control of this match and with the exceptional Dara O’Brien on blistering form with boot and try scoring skills and with Conor Quinlan neatly taking a drop goal, this was a good and competent team performance with the makings of a fine outfit to play at this level.

Cashel 2nd’s were again unlucky to come away the losers of this tight encounter last Sunday afternoon.
