Congratulations to Callan Scully and the Tipperary minor football side who overcame the challenge of Limerick in Newcastlewest during the week 2-12 to 1-11. Once again Callan gave an assured performance in the goals. They now play Waterford in Leamybrien at 18:30 on Wednesday evening and we wish Callan and the team the very best of luck.
Our under-16 footballers were unfortunately beaten by a superb Kilruane MacDonaghs side on Friday evening Nenagh 6-6 to 2-2. A notable mention must go to Darragh Ryan who produced a stunning second half penalty save. In a tremendous act of sportsmanship, the lad who missed the penalty, went out of his way to congratulate Darragh on his fine save during the next break in play. A fantastic young ambassador for the Kilruane MacDonaghs club. The lads now face Ballina in Ballina on Monday at 7pm and your support would be appreciated.
Our senior camogie team are expecting to play Drom & Inch in their second league game of the year on Sunday in MacDonagh Park. Please keep an eye on social media for updated details of this fixture.
