WHAT YOU CAN DO FOR YOUR COUNTY!

Well done to all the residents of the village and surrounding areas for the flying of the blue and gold. We must give particular praise to the residents of St. Finnans on the fantastic display of colours with Tipperary bunting and flags everywhere (and did we see a Kilkenny colour!). We were contacted by Alison Burke from Castleview who has stated that their estate will look even better - Game On!! Teddy Bears & Flags in Mount Carmel looking very well. So only a few more days to fly your colours. Best of luck to Brendan Cummins and the Tipperary Team on Sunday as they go for two in a row. Is feidir linn - Yes we can. Up Tipp.
