What’s On in Tipperary...

Paint Drop-off

Paint Drop-off

Tipperary Tidy Towns will have a Paint drop-off point in the Kickham Street Car Park, opposite Tipperary Co op Supervalu on Friday 7th june from 11 - 3pm.

We are working with the Tipperary Regional Youth Service in the coming months to paint a mural designed by the teenagers on the hoarding opposite Dunnes.

We require as many colours in emulsion as possible to make this project a success.

A design will be launched later in June.

We need your paint for this worthwhile cause.

Your continued support to Tipperary Tidy Towns is much appreciated.

Please put up the attached poster and promote this worthwhile project.

Canon Hayes Sports Scholarships

The Canon Hayes Recreation Centre in Tipperary Town is now seeking applications for its 2013 Sports Scholarship Scheme. This very successful initiative assists up and coming sportspeople in the development of their sporting career by offering them free use of the facilities in the Canon Hayes Sports Centre and the adjoining Sean Treacy Memorial Swimming Pool, plus professional training, mentoring and fitness advice from the fitness staff in the Centre, for a 12 month period.

The scheme, has over the years, assisted many sportspeople from the county including former Munster and Ireland Rugby International, Alan Quinlan.

If you have achieved success in your chosen sport in the last 12 months and you think that a scholarship would benefit your sporting development, or you know of someone that you think would benefit from a scholarship, then contact the Canon Hayes Recreation Centre for an application form. The closing date for receipt of completed application forms is Friday, June 14th.
