With the inter county season officially over and the Divisional championships complete everyone’s attention now turns to the Tipperary County Senior Hurling and Football championships.
Last week the fixtures for the first round in each competition were revealed by Tipperary GAA.
First up our senior hurlers will take on Templederry Kenyons in Borrisoleigh at 6:45pm on Saturday the 29th of July.
The following weekend will see both senior and intermediate footballers in action. On Friday the 4th of August our Senior Footballers take on Moycarkey Borris at 7:30pm and our Intermediates will be out on the Bank Holiday Monday August the 7th against Galtee Rovers in Drombane.
We wish players and management teams the best of luck for the championships ahead.
Our Junior Hurlers had a great win on Saturday evening defeating Boherlahan Dualla on a scoreline of 1-20 to 1-13. We lead by the minimum at half time at 9 points to 8 but a strong second half including a goal from Cian Hennessy saw us over the line.
Our Junior team is playing their 1st round of the championship this Monday at 7.45pm against Aravale Rovers in Sean Treacy Park Tipp Town. Best of luck to the panel and management. All support is greatly appreciated. Their group includes Moyne Templetouhy, Silvermines, St.Patrick’s Drangan, and Sliabh Na MBan.

Under 19 Football
Our under 19 footballers will take on Gortnahoe Glengoole this Wednesday the 26th of July in Castleiney at 7:30pm. The lads have made a great start to the year so please come along and support if you can.
Tipperary Camogie’s quest for a first senior final appearance since 2006 came to an end on Saturday at the hands of Waterford in Nowlan Park. Played in conditions closer to a November’s day rather than the middle of July our girls ultimately lost out by the narrowest of margins. All four Loughmore women played a part on the day but unfortunately it wasn’t to be for Aoife, Eimear, Mairead, and Niamh. Despite the loss it was a year of improvement for Tipperary. Narrowly missing out on a League Final they went on an unbeaten run that saw them annex a Munster title for the first time since 2010 which was only ended by the Deise on Saturday.
On Saturday morning Loughmore Castleiney Gaa hosted Moyne Templetuohy, Gortnahoe, Thurles Gaels and Moycarkey for an Under 9 football blitz. There was a great turnout with nearly 80 kids showcasing their skills. Well done to all who played and thanks to those who helped with the refreshments afterwards.
It was a tough week for our juvenile teams this week.
On Tuesday evening our under 13 hurlers were defeated by Drom and Inch 5-4 to 4-17.
Thursday evening saw a very strong Durlas Óg emerge victorious over our under 15 hurlers while on Friday Upperchurch Drombane were 3 point winners over our under 17 hurlers on a scoreline of 1-13 to 0-13 points.
These competitions all take a break this week before resuming next.
