Congratulations to Jake Morris, Barry Heffernan and the Tipperary senior hurling team who recorded a comprehensive win over Clare in the opening round of the league on Saturday in Semple Stadium. Jake finished the game with two points to his name while he also played a major role in the build up to Seamus Callanan’s two goals. Best of luck next Saturday evening to everyone involved as they take on Limerick in the Gaelic Grounds.
On Saturday Grace O’Brien came on as a half-time substitute for Tipperary in their league clash against Galway in the Ragg but unfortunately she couldn’t prevent her side from going down to a defeat. Hard luck Grace.
