Congrats to Adrian Walsh who was presented with the Annerville Award for Soccer in Tipperary last week. We were saddened to hear the news of Paddy Finnuance’s retirement from Tipp FM as we all enjoyed his wonderful, exciting accounts of games down through the years. We called on him on a number of occasions to assist us at Club functions and he always gave of his time willingly. Thanks Paddy and we wish you well.
The South Finals of Scor Na Paisti were held on Sunday. We thank all those who participated from the Club and congratulate the Rince Foirne who came 2nd, Tommie Mullins who came 1st in the Solo Singing and Niamh Martin who also took top spot in the Recitation. Kilsheelan-Kilcash also got second in the Instrumental Music. The winners of each group go forward to the County Finals in Cashel on February 17th and we wish them every success.
