Does fouling pay in hurling?
That’s what the statistics suggest according to our former PRO and senior hurling selector Brian McDonnell. Writing for the Irish Examiner, Brian, using a myriad of statistics, argues that in hurling at least, crime does pay! Check out his forensically detailed article here.
Best of luck to Barry, Jake and the Tipperary hurlers who open their championship campaign this weekend against Limerick in Páirc Uí Chaoimh.

Despite the wintery feel to the morning and the new restrictions to be observed the brilliant under-10 boys completed a non-contact training session on Saturday morning. There was no match which was greatly missed by the boys but there was stiff competition in the crossbar challenge and next week’s winner’s pot promises to be even more motivating. The boys felt great leaving the all drills session and were energised for the day.
Training for this group will continue every Friday evening under the new guidelines of non-contact and in groups of fifteen. Anyone who wishes to train is more than welcome, it is completely optional for the boys. Training will consist of skills work and fun activities. training moves to Nenagh College on Friday nights from 7pm to 8pm.
Please keep encouraging the boys to pick up the hurley at home and practice daily.
Training will continue for the next few weeks in Nenagh College. Hurling on Tuesdays and football on Thursdays.
Under-16 football training resumes at Nenagh College each Friday night at 8 pm.
