A great crowd gathered in the complex in MacDonagh Park last Saturday night for the presentation of medals to our Juvenile (2021 & 2022), Camogie (2022) and Handball (2022) winning groups.
Guest speaker for this was former Tipperary Senior Hurling manager, Eamon O’Shea, and we thank Eamon for joining us on the night.
Two very important club documents were also re-launched on Saturday night, the Coaching and Games Development Policy and the Code of Ethics, Conduct and Practice Document – both of these documents will be available on our club website in the coming days.

The preparatory work is now completed on the new field. This has included the removal of all trees and shrubs, the crushing of all the concrete paths and the recovery of all the service ducting and all the electric lamp posts.
While the original intention was to have the field prepared and sown by the latest the end of September, this unfortunately did not happen with the recent wet weather intervening. The site is now closed until early spring 2023 when hopefully this phase of the develpment will be completed.
The drone footage below on the link below gives a great overview of how MacDonagh Park now looks with the new hurling wall and views of the new field – thanks to Shane Hennessy for this footage.
We are asking that those who still intend to financially support this phase of the project by joining our Membership programme do so as soon as possible by contacting any club officer or committee member for more information. Donations can also be made electronically – bank details below.
Please be sure to include your details if transferring money to this dedicated fundraising account and notify Anne Kennedy or John Tooher to advise of the transfer in order for receipts and membership data to be updated.
