Willie’s Winning Matches
Congratulations to Willie Bolger and Sarsfields Hurling Club in Western Australia who beat Western Swans, 1-20 to 1-10, in the county final on Saturday last. Willie is after building up a fine collection of championship medals on foreign fields in recent years. Keep up the great work Willie.

Danielle brought her amazing form across the water with her banging home five goals in the final.

The Nenagh Éire Óg under-8 street leagues finished up Saturday morning in MacDonagh Park. The leagues ran over the past three weeks and Saturday was the seventh day of them. 33 children represented their areas in town and ten others had also taken part over the past number of weeks but were away on holidays today all over the world in far away places from China, France, Portugal, Poland and to the USA. They left instructions to their teammates before they left that they wanted to win the trophies and to try their best.
We will run a repeat street league finals day in September when they are all back home.
The four teams were from the Borrisokane Road, Thurles & Limerick Roads, Gortlandroe and Benedine.
The four teams lined up for a mini-parade pre-match and stood for Amhrán na bhFiann with their team mates.
All teams played Gaelic football semi-finals first with Gortlandroe and Borrrisokane Road reaching the first and second place final and Limerick/Thurles and Bendine playing the third and fourth place final. Gortlandroe came out on top with a hard earned win by one score. In the hurling Borrisokane Road got revenge on Gortlandroe to reach the first and second place finals against a strong Benedine team. Limerick/Thurles Road and Gortlandroe played out the third and fourth place final. Borrisokane won out the final by the narrowest of margins.
After the games Tipperary and Éire Óg star Conor McCarthy presented each player with a medal and presented the two winning captains with the trophies. Our thanks to Conor and we wish him and the rest of the under-20 team all the best of luck next Tuesday evening against Cork in the Munster Final.
Juvenile Chairman Liam Heffernan commended the children on their great efforts and encouraged them to stay practising and to take part in the club summer camp next week and the Cúl Camp in late August.
A special thanks to our two young whistlers from the under-16 hurling panel for helping out. Thanks also to Catherine McTiernan for all the hard work behind the scenes helping organise the street league.
We welcomed the under-10 boys of Michael Cusack’s Hurling Club from South County Galway, a combination of Beagh GAA and Kilbacenty clubs. A wonderful bunch of lads and excellent young hurlers. We look forward to meeting them again. Thanks to our under-10 parents for the wonderful spread of healthy treats for all after the matches.
Our under-12 group C warriors bowed out of the championship during the week when they lost out to an excellent Newport side in their North Tipperary quarter-final. They have made huge strides in their development this year and should be proud of their efforts playing up a grade in Group C for the first time. Well done to them on their mighty efforts last night and keep up the good work at training!
