Congratulations go to the Tipperary senior hurlers on their amazing win yesterday in Croke Park

Barry Heffernan and Jake Morris surrounded by family and friends

We wish to extend our congratulations to the Tipperary senior hurlers on their great win yesterday in Croke Park in the All-Ireland senior hurling final over Brian Cody’s Kilkenny.

This is the 28th time we have won the hurling All-Ireland and added to our four football titles, brings Tipperary’s total senior victories to 32. It’s no wonder that we’re known as the Premier County with so many titles to our name.

Home Coming

After the on stage formalities have concluded players and management will return out to the Dome.

Best wishes to the Tipperary LGFA, Tipperary camogie and the Tipperary senior and under-20 hurlers

It’s a fantastic time to be a supporter of the Blue and Gold and with a number of huge games coming up we want to wish our teams the very best of luck.

Firstly, the Tipperary senior hurlers will line out in Croke Park on Sunday and will be aiming to capture the county’s 28th senior crown against age-old rivals Kilkenny. Liam Sheedy’s men came through a battle for the ages against Wexford in the semi-final and will be hoping to continue this form against Cody’s cats.

Secondly, the Tipperary LGFA side will play Sligo in Nowlan Park, Kilkenny tomorrow, Saturday, at 3pm in the All-Ireland intermediate semi-final. Tipperary last won the intermediate final two years ago in Croke Park and Shane Ronayne’s charges will be hoping to once again reach the decider. Last night the Tipperary starting fifteen was revealed and can be seen below.

Thirdly, the Tipperary camogie sides have two massive games tomorrow in the intermediate and senior All-Ireland championships with both sides in semi-final action. The intermediates face Galway in Cratloe at 2pm while the seniors play Kilkenny in the LIT Gaelic Grounds, Limerick at 5:30pm.

Finally, the Tipperary under-20 hurlers play Cork in the All-Ireland final on Saturday, 24 August at 6pm in the LIT Gaelic Grounds.

Up the Premier!

County Minor Finals

Meanwhile we send our congratulations to Grangemockler Ballyneale who captured the Michael Hogan Cup following a 2-11 to 0-11 victory over Thurles Sarsfield’s in the county minor A final last weekend. This was extra special for the South club as it was their first win at this grade and with the 100th anniversary of Bloody Sunday occurring next year, it is fitting that the trophy named after one of their most famous sons has finally made it home. And in a fantastic tribute, the panel brought the trophy to Michael’s grave and there’s no doubt that he was smiling down on all from above.

In the B decider Kilsheelan Kilcash ensured another county minor title headed to the South division after they beat Aherlow Gaels in Cahir on a 2-15 to 1-5 scoreline. Congratulations to all involved on the win and commiserations to both Thurles Sarsfield’s and Aherlow Gaels on the defeat.

Disappointment as Tipperary Exit the Munster under-20 championship

There was huge disappointment in Semple Stadium last night as the Tipperary footballers exited the Eirgrid Munster under-20 championship at the hands of Limerick

It has been a year to forget for Tipperary football with our seniors, minors and now under-20s exiting the championship much earlier than we would have liked with Limerick becoming our arch-nemesis in both codes. Last night our footballers entered the championship on a good run of form following wins over Waterford, Carlow and Wexford in the Andrew Cordon Cup as well as notable displays in challenge games and so were bitterly disappointed to find themselves on the wrong side of a 1-13 to 1-12 scoreline when referee James Birmingham blew the full-time whistle.

Played in front of 697 paying spectators it was Limerick midfielder Jack Downey who became the Treaty’s hero after he pointed a ’45, three minutes into injury time, to send his side through to the semi-finals where they will face Kerry. Tipperary did have a chance to level it moments later when Seán O’Connor tried his best from a difficult free, forty yards out by the New Stand, however his effort fell short much to the delight of the travelling support. To be fair to O’Connor there was huge pressure on his shoulders and it was a difficult free at the best of times.

Tipperary started the game brightly and by the fifteenth minute led 0-6 to 0-2. Tom McGlinchey’s side were defending well and quickly converting defence into attack refusing to allow the Limerick backs time to organise.

By the break Tipperary were 0-8 to 0-5 to the good and got the dream start to the second half when Rian Quigley found himself inside the large parallelogram at the Town End goal and he drilled his shot low and hard past Jamie Hickey in the Limerick goal. Two quick points followed and Tipperary appeared to be in a commanding position with their eight-point lead.

However Limerick showed great composure and determination for the remainder of the half to reel in the Premier’s lead. Tipperary failed to score for the next fifteen minutes as Limerick rattled off 1-4, including a stunning Noel Callnan goal which was worth the admission fee alone.

Two minutes from time substitute Niall McAuliffe, with his very first touch of the ball, levelled the counties before Jack Downey’s late winner secured the win for Limerick.
