The Club provided Jim Ryan and Bill Ryan (Laha) to the Tipperary team that played in Croke Park on Bloody Sunday against Dublin in November, 1920 when their playing colleague Michael Hogan of Grangemockler was one of 15 people shot and killed by British forces who opened fire from the sidelines.

Loughmore-Castleiney men Paul Ormonde, David Kennedy and Noel Morris all won Celtic Crosses with Tipperary in 2001, while Micheál Webster and Evan Sweeney have worn the blue and gold of Tipperary more recently.
