Last Sunday was a disappointing day for the Tipperary Senior Hurlers. A heavy defeat at the hands of Clare was further compounded by what looked a sever injury to our own John McGrath. Everyone in the club wishes John the best of luck and a speedy recovery. Noel McGrath started the game while Brian McGrath came off the bench.
Next up for the Tipp senior hurlers is a trip to Limerick to face the raining All-Ireland champions. Tickets must be purchased before the game from Ticketmaster Online or from Centra or Supervalue Stores.
A tonic for the fortunes of our senior hurlers was provided on Wednesday night when the Tipperary under 20 hurlers ran out winners against a much fancied Cork side to set up a Munster Final clash with Limerick in Limerick on Wednesday the 4th of May. Ed Connolly scored 2 points in what was a memorable and enjoyable night for all Premier County Supporters.
Eoin O’Connell started wing back for the Tipp minor footballers on Thursday night in a great win against Clare on a scoreline of 3-12 to 1-8 in Wolff Tones GAA Shannon. They now go ahead to play Limerick in Mallow on Thursday May 5th.
On Saturday the 23rd the Tipperary Camogie had an impressive win against Limerick in the TUS Gaelic Grounds in a double header with the Munster Senior Hurling Championship game between Limerick and Waterford.
The Tipperary Senior Footballers begin their Munster campaign with a trap to Fraher Field Dungarvan to play Waterford on Saturday evening.

Liam McGrath linked up with David Power’s men after the Division 4 Leave Final. The game throws in at 7pm and will be broadcast live on TippFm. Tipp will be hoping to go one better after drawing with the Deise in the opening round of the league.
Aoife McGrath started at wing back while Niamh Treacy started in midfield. Eimear McGrath came off the bench and netted the game’s only goal in the second half.
There is no break for the team as they go straight into a Munster Semi Final against Clare on Sunday the 1st of May. This is again being played as a double header along with the Munster Senior Hurling Championship game between Cork and Clare in FBD Semple Stadium. The Camogie match will throw in at 12pm and Tipp have named an unchanged side meaning Aoife McGrath (7) and Niamh Treacy (9) both start while Eimear McGrath and Mairead Eviston are named on the bench.
