Best of luck to the senior hurlers as they face Toomevara in the final county group game tomorrow (Saturday) at 3:45pm in Semple Stadium. Tickets for the game can be bought at https://embed.futureticketing.ie/c/tipperary-gaa/. The game will also be livestreamed by Tipperary GAA for €10 (or €25 for all 4 weekends games) and can be purchased here: https://page.inplayer.com/TipperaryGAA/ We are already qualified from the group but victory would see us finish top and guaranteed to avoid a preliminary quarter final.
Well done to our senior footballers who defeated Killenaule last weekend in the final county championship group match on a score of 1-12 to 0-9. It was a game we controlled throughout with the goal coming from a Paul Shanahan penalty in the first half. This result means we finish 2nd in the group and qualify for the quarter finals for the second year in a row. Our opponents will be JK Brackens with the game scheduled to be played the weekend of September 17th.
Best of luck to the junior hurlers who face Moycarkey-Borris in the mid semi final this Sunday at 4pm in Boherlahan. Tickets for this game are available at https://embed.futureticketing.ie/c/mid-tipp-gaa/
