The members of Tipperary Hockey Club would like to express their gratitude to everybody who supported their church gate collection on the weekend of May 11th & 12th.

The club had a good season with two teams entered into the Munster Hockey League. The division 2 team started in this league for the first time and found the standard of hockey very high. After a shaky start and a few games played they got into their stride and started to believe in their ability and that they were of an equal standard to competing teams in division 2 having worked their way from division 6 to division 2 over the last seven years.

Our division 6 players were a new team to enter this league comprising a mixture of very young players, college students, and players that played during their school days and with the club over the last few years. They got off to a great start and after Christmas found the going a little tough but gave 100% and will be a team to watch next season.

Under age club: We will be starting an underage section in late August for boys & girls aged 8 – 12 years. All are welcome. More information to follow nearer the time. If interested contact Nuala O’Sullivan 086 3438899.

We would like to thank Thadgh, Ivan and Nuala for coaching the teams and the parents who helped out over the season.

The AGM took place in April and the following are the elected officers:

Chairperson: Mary O’Dwyer, Vice-Chairperson: Mary Hogan, Secretary: Siobhan Carew, Youth Officer: Caitriona Hayes, Fixture Secretaries: Joanne Duggan, Nuala O’Sullivan, Treasurer: Pauline Carey, Committee: A Ahern, M Kiely, M O’Grady, S Toomey.
