Hockey Club

Training for the new season is every Friday night 8 to 9pm and Sunday mornings in Canon Hayes Sports Complex at 10am. New members are always welcome. We have two teams in the Munster League: Div 2 and

Div 6. Our Div 2 team played their first League game last Saturday away against Harlequins, Cork.

It was a fast game from the start with the Tipperary goalie Deirdre Duggan called upon to make many great saves. Midway through the match, Harlequins managed to get behind the defence and took the lead. Following the half time talk from Tadhg & Nuala the girls settled in to the game. Jen Marie, Lucy & Aine were beginning to make space up front and Emily, Bernie, Ciara and Elaine showed great experience in their Hockey skills. When Caroline Hosford made space in the circle she took on the goalie and scored the equaliser with five minutes left in the match.

Sarah, Pauline, Claire and Aine defended brilliantly and all the girls were delighted with the draw.

Div 2 are playing their next match this Saturday at home against Waterford at 4pm and Div 6 have an away match against Harlequins in Cork next Sunday at 2.45pm.

Under age training has also commenced for boys & girls age 8 to 12 years every Sunday morning from 10 to 11am at the Sports Complex. Many congratulations to our Leaving and Junior Cert players on their results.

We wish bon voyage to Eileen O’Sullivan who has gone to Australia and Alice Quirke on her trip to China to further her studies.

Our sincere sympathy to Marita, Maebh and the Mulhall Family on the sad passing of Dermot.

Arravale Rovers

U 10 team played a three-sectioned challenge match against Cappamore on Saturday last in Sean Tracey Park. The game was fast paced and fiery with the young players trying to make the best of their chance to play against a different team.  

Just a quick reminder to parents that it is compulsory that your child wears moulded mouth guards when playing Gaelic Football for both training and matches. They all must bring mouth guards for future to play football. 

As the days will be getting wetter and colder we would appreciate everyone to bring both runners and boots to every training session.
