Congratulations: Congratulations to Ciara McGrath who was a member of the UL team which won the All-Ireland Freshers Camogie title with a comprehensive victory over WIT. Ciara scored an amazing personal tally of 7-5 in the final. Well done also to Alanna Morris and Aileen Duggan who were members of the Tipperary under-18 panel which defeated Derry at the weekend. They play Dublin this weekend in a Dublin venue and must win in order to progress to the next round. Good luck girls.
Junior B: Our junior B’s defeated Portroe 3-9 to 2-3 in the league on Sunday last. It was a great all-round performance and special mention must go to Alice Darcy who, without the hurley, flicked the ball around the goalkeeper, Lionel Messi-style, before kicking it into the back of the net. Well done Alice.
