Minor Hurling Team of the Year
Congratulations to Sam O’Farrell who was one of four Tipperary players named on the Electric Ireland Team of the Year for 2022. Sam was captain of the Tipperary minors this year and led by example all the way through the campaign – his late point in the All Ireland final kick started Tipp’s revival that culminated in their famous win.
Well done to Sam – a richly deserved award.

Under 11 boys had another amazing trip last week, the boys travelled to Semple Stadium to play on the hallowed ground just like their many heroes have done before. The boys played in a Go Games competition against teams from Munster and afterwards were treated to a tour of Semple Stadium and all of it’s behind the scenes set up. The boys went to Thurles CBS afterwards and had some team building fun playing various games and sports. Thanks to Niall for organising the day out, to coaches Brian and Kieran for mentoring and looking after the boys for the day and also to Dermot and Sean for helping out. Training continues on Tuesday of this week for hurling and football. Hurling match in Roscrea on Saturday morning. New players born in 2011 and 2012 welcome to come along and give it a try.

Our Under 15’s began their championship campaign last Thursday with a hard fought win against a strong Roscrea team. They now play Kilruane on Thursday evening at 7pm in Nenagh. Training continues Tuesday and Thursday from 7-8 pm.
Our Under 17 team put in a very good performance against Newport on Monday night, eventually winning by 2-16 to 0-8. From the start, Éire Óg set the pace with the backs dominant and forwards scoring when chances presented. With four weeks until the knockout stages this was a very positive display despite some key absences. With training now at full pace we need everyone to attend in the coming weeks. U17 training continues every Monday and Wednesday at 6.50 pm unless there is a match.
