G.A.A: The Junior hurlers will be representing the County away to the Limerick champions St Kierans on November 11th in the Munster Quarter Final. It is hoped to run a supporters bus to this game and anyone interested in travelling can give their names to any committee member. It is important to have vocal support on the day so do make the effort as it is a novelty to be playing in the Munster championship. The players are putting in a great effort in training, challenge matches etc so they deserve your backing.
A Name the All Stars competition was held as a fundraiser for the team. Thanks to all who supported this effort and congratulations to Ross Smith, Clonmel who won the €300 as he was closest in his selection. We thank both the individuals and the businesses who have got behind the team by contributing towards the training and provision of gear etc, all of which is most appreciated by the players and the Club.
The London Tipperary Association held their 60th Anniversary in Cricklewood last weekend. Bill Maher, as Tipperary Minor captain, was one of their guests and he had a wonderful time.
Well done to Tadgh Lonergan. Paul Maher and Kevin Guiry, who came through from the backs, to send over the equalising point in the High School’s Harty Cup match against Castletroy.
We congratulate Roz Purcell on reaching the Final of Celebrity Bainsteoir but unfortunately her team had to give best to the Mayo side by the minimum.
