G.A.A: In the second round of the championship the Senior Football team took on Killenaule in Fethard and at the interval they were in arrears by 0-8 to 1-3. Tommy Ryan, who scored five points played a major role throughout and Bill Maher made an impact when he was introduced. They had to share the spoils in the end on a scoreline of 1-11 to 0-14.
All are invited to an Open Evening at the Clubhouse on Friday April 20 from 7-9.30pm to see the proposals for the Football field development. Plans have been prepared by Martin Nolan who will explain what is proposed and who will discuss all aspects of the proposals on that night. The plans will be available for examination and clarification
This is an opportunity to provide feedback to the Club. Feedback will be welcomed from local residents, club members and from the local community indeed from anyone who has a point to make. The Club want to be able to consider all those points before formally finalising and making a planning application for the Football Field Development works.
The Club invites everyone in the community to come along and see the proposals for improving the main Club playing field and for providing a second smaller field for juveniles on the newly enlarged site.
Well done to David Power and Bill Maher on the part they played in the football victory over the Kingdom last Saturday evening in Tralee. After their magnificent exploits last year, it was expected that Kerry would be out for revenge, but Tipp’s fine win shows last year was no fluke. Excellent defending by the Tipperary full backline in the first half proved the foundation for success. Philip Quirke gave a masterful display of fielding in the middle of the park, but it was our own Bill Maher who scored an inspirational point in the second half quickly followed by another allied with his marvellous run up the field to lay off for Colman Kennedy to dispatch to the net which set up the victory.
Congratulations to Davy Vaughan who won a car in the Waterford County Board Draw.
Best of luck to the U/15 South Tipperary hurlers who will be in action next weekend when the Club will be represented by Martin Gibbs, Kevin Kehoe and Brendan Martin.
