Online registration opens for the Blues’ 5km and 10km family fun run, Jake Morris is instrumental in Tipperary’s fightback while details of the annual summer camp are revealed. This week’s notes are packed with news on the Blues.
Congratulations to Michael Ryan’s Tipperary side who came from eleven points down to snatch a draw in the Gaelic Grounds yesterday in the Munster championship. Jake Morris was introduced in the second half and made a dramatic impact on proceedings. He put Waterford’s Austin Gleeson under severe pressure that led to Tipperary’s second goal while also finding Ronan Maher with a delightful pass that resulted in Tipperary’s second last point before winning the crucial free that led to Jason Forde’s equaliser deep in stoppage time. The side face Clare on Sunday next in Semple Stadium requiring a win to keep any hopes of finishing in third place alive.
We commiserate with the county minor side who were defeated by Waterford in a dramatic game yesterday. Seán Phelan had a fine game at wing-back while Cian O’ Farrell was introduced as a second-half substitute. This side face Clare on Sunday next in their final game of the round robin series in Semple Stadium.
The North Tipperary/Mid Tipperary team play Galway McDonagh on Wednesday evening in MacDonagh Park, Nenagh at 19:30. This team features our own Liam Heffernan, Conor Hennessy and Gavin Dooley while both Shane Connolly and Michael McNamara are part of the management team. Best of luck to all concerned.
Our senior side return to action on Tuesday, June 12th at 8pm, when they travel to The Ragg to take on Drom & Inch in the next round of the county league.
Our junior-B side played their first championship game in two years when they faced Silvermines in MacDonagh Park on Friday evening and unfortunately were beaten 3-26 to 3-7. Despite the result there were a lot of positives from the game including the performance of young Martin Donnellan at full-forward who bagged three goals for himself. Congratulations also go to Brian Duffy who was named captain for the year. This year the junior-B side are managed by Leonard Ryan and Enda O’ Sullivan.
