The very best of luck to the Tipperary senior footballers who will play Mayo on Sunday in the All-Ireland semi-final. The lads will be hoping to reach their first senior final since 1920, played in 1922 due to the War of Independence, where they defeated Dublin 1-6 to 1-2 with Tommy Powell getting the all-important goal. In the semi-final that year they defeated Sunday’s opponents Mayo 1-5 to 1-0.

In anticipation of this year’s eagerly awaited Late Late Toy Show all the Under 10 boys who were at training last Friday evening received a mouth-watering Selection Box to enjoy while watching the Toy Show. We hope the boys enjoyed the Toy Show as much as their selection boxes :-).

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 has moved 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.
Our brilliant Under 14 boys took part in the local Féile skills challenge in both hurling and football today. Not at all deterred by the heavy fog, the boys battled it out to progress to a place in the next round at North Tipp level and of course to win a fabulous trophy.
Well done to all the boys who participated today. Best wishes to the boys progressing to the next round. Sincere thank you to the dedicated coaches who coordinated and ran today’s competition.
Training will continue for the next few weeks in Nenagh College. Hurling on Tuesdays and football on Thursdays.
U16/17 hurling training continues on Friday night at 8 pm in Nenagh College. Turnout has been good and we are hoping for all our squad to be back for our last few sessions before the Christmas break.
All competitive games are suspended currently in light of the recent guidelines.
Thank you to all the parents who encourage practicing of both codes at home, please continue to encourage the children to pick up the hurley or football and get a few minutes of practice in each day.
