The senior camógs draw with Silvermines, the senior hurlers play their first championship game next Saturday while the under-12 footballers have mixed results. All this and more in a bumper edition of the news on the Blues
Our senior hurlers begin their 2019 Tipperary Water county championship on Saturday in Dolla at 15:30 when we play Upperchurch Drombane. The team have been training extremely hard for this game and your support would be very much appreciated by all involved.
There was disappointment this weekend for all our junior players as all three teams had their fixtures postponed. The junior-A side were due to play Burgess, the junior-Bs were down to meet Silvermines while the junior footballers were supposed to play Clerihan. These games will be played at a future date.
Under-6 & Under-8s
Save the date!
The under-8 hurlers made a welcome return to training this week and they will be getting together every Saturday morning from 10am. New players are more than welcome.
Our under-12 A footballers had a fantastic win over Inane Rovers 2-8 to 3-4 in MacDonagh Park on Saturday. For a full range of photographs please click here. The under-12 C side played a highly entertaining match against Newport and unfortunately lost out by one point, 2-2 to 2-1. Photographs from this game can be accessed here.
Best of luck to our under-14 hurlers in the county Féile na nGael semi-final tomorrow evening, Monday, against Cashel King Cormacs in Borrisoleigh at 7pm. All support welcome.
Well done to Avril Dooley and Ciara Morris who won the Munster under-15 D development tournament this morning. Congratulations also to Casandra Jones and Danielle Kyne (Youghalarra) who won the under-13 D Munster development tournament. Hard luck to Billy O Brien who lost the final in under-12 singles and Emmett Jones and Stephen McNamara who lost the final in under-12 doubles. Nenagh Handball Club congratulate everyone who represented Tipperary this morning.
On Tuesday, April 2nd there will be a club social walk leaving MacDonagh Park at 7pm. With the hour going forward and the longer evenings in, it will be an ideal way to get some fresh air and exercise in a relaxed social atmosphere. All are welcome

Sam meets his hero
“Education is simply the soul of a society as it passes from one generation to another”
We received this absolutely fantastic photograph during the week of the late Tommy Mulcahy passing on his knowledge to an eager and young Sam O’Farrell. Tommy has gifted so many young people his knowledge, wisdom and love of Gaelic games and has helped ensure our sports will continue to prosper with the next generation. Tommy obviously told Sam something special here as he is developing into a fine hurler and Gaelic footballer.
