We are not in action this weekend as our game v Mullinahone was one of the few which was played 2 weeks ago. We have already secured progress from the group and the other group game in this round between Toomevara & Holycross will be played tomorrow(Saturday) at 4pm in Semple Stadium. This match will be streamed live by Tipperary county board for €10 at https://page.inplayer.com/TipperaryGAA/ Our final group game v Toomevara will be played in 2 weeks time.
Hard luck to our senior footballers who were defeated by Clonmel Commercials last weekend. A strong first half performance saw us trail by 1 point at half time. However a Commercials goal seconds after the restart put us on the back foot and despite fighting back well another goal right before the 2nd water break put the game virtually out of sight. Clonmel claimed victory by 2-11 to 0-9. In the other group game Killenaule beat Cahir by 8 points. This means our clash with Killenaule next weekend will be winner takes all to qualify for the knockout stage. Fixture details will be confirmed early next week.
Our junior hurlers are in action in the mid quarter final tomorrow(Saturday) at 7pm in Drombane against Loughmore-Castleiney. Tickets for this game are €6 and can be bought at https://embed.futureticketing.ie/c/mid-tipp-gaa/ Best of luck to the team.
