Well done to our senior hurlers who defeated Toomevara in the final group game of the county championship last weekend. It was Toome who got the better of the first half talking a 2 point lead into the break. However, a Padraig Greene goal shortly after the restart put us in front and we maintained a narrow lead from then on and eventually got a 3 point victory 1-16 to 0-16. That result sees us top the group and qualify for the quarter finals. Our opponents will be known after this weekend's preliminary quarter final clashes. Finishing top of the group also means we will be a top seed for next year's championship.
We will face JK Brackens in the county quarter finals with the match scheduled for Holycross on Saturday 17th at 4pm. Tickets can be purchased from early next week at https://embed.futureticketing.ie/c/tipperary-gaa/
Well done to the junior A hurlers who beat Moycarkey last weekend in the mid semi final. A goal from Loughlin Ryan saw us build up a first half lead of 10 points. The expected fightback from Moycarkey came as they reduced the lead, however further goals from Conor Fahey and Tom Purcell saw us run out 3-17 to 0-15 winners. This sets up a final clash with Thurles Sarsfields this Saturday 10th at 4pm. This is a double header with the B final between Thurles Sarsfields & Drom/Inch at 2pm. Best of luck to the team and hopefully there will be a good turnout to cheer them on. Tickets for this game are available at https://embed.futureticketing.ie/c/mid-tipp-gaa/
