Tipperary defeated Antrim (2-12 0-13) in round one but disappointingly lost out to Sligo (1-16 2-14) the next day out. However last Saturday, with a much improved performance, they got their promotion drive back on track, accounting for Laois 1-16 1-10.

Jimmy Feehan

 

Longford however, will be tricky opponents, as they put a massive dent in our promotion hopes in the corresponding fixture last year when they won by six points in Pearse Park, 1-17 to 1-11.

Brian Kavanagh put in a fine performance that day ending the match with a personal tally of 0-8 while he was ably assisted by James McGivney and Darren Gallagher. For the Premier both Michael Quinlivan and Conor Sweeney were superb but couldn’t do enough to thwart the hosts.

Scorers for Tipperary: C Sweeney 0-6 (3f), M Quinlivan 0-4, (2f), J Longeran 1-1.

Scorers for Longford: B Kavanagh 0-8 (5f), J McGivney 0-5, L Moran 1-0, D Gallagher, B McKeon, L Connerton, M Hughes 0-1 each.

Liam McGrath

Surprisingly Tipperary and Longford have only crossed swords twice in championship action at all grades in both codes.

The first occasion was on July 1, 2006, when Tipperary travelled to Pearse Park and were on the receiving end of a 1-23 to 1-10 beating. However the second occasion provided much happier memories when Peter Creedon’s charges inflicted a 17-point hammering (2-17 0-6) in Semple Stadium on July 5th, 2014.

Philip Austin

Michael Quinlivan and Peter Acheson both found the net as former Dublin footballer, Jack Sheedy, looked on helplessly as his Longford side simply had no answer for Tipperary. Leading 1-8 to 0-4 Tipperary were expecting a much sterner test as Longford had accounted for Derry in the previous round but this time out they failed to perform.

Conor Sweeney led the way scoring 0-8 (5f) while our defence were in unforgiving mood restricting their opponents to 0-3 from play in the entire match.

Tipperary: P Fitzgerald; G Mulhair, P Codd (0-01), C McDonald; C O’Riordan, R Kiely, J Coghlan; S O’Brien, G Hannigan; P Austin, P Acheson (1-02), B Fox; C Sweeney (0-08, 5f), M Quinlivan (1-00), B Grogan (0-04, 3f).

Subs: B Mulvihill (0-01) for Quinlivan (13), C Kennedy (0-01) for Austin (53), S Flynn for Grogan (64), I Fahey for Acheson (66), A Campbell for Mulhair (69).

Longford: D Sheridan; D Brady, B Gilleran, F Battrim; C.P. Smyth, E Williams (0-01), S Mulligan; K Diffley, B O’Farrell; M Quinn (0-01), F McGee, P Barden (0-01); S McCormack (0-01f), B Kavanagh (0-02f), A Rowan.

Subs: S Doyle for McCormack (40), N Mulligan for Diffley (48), M Hughes for Rowan (48), R McEntire for McGee (60), P Brady for Battrim (69), P Gill for Williams (70+2).

Referee: P O’Sullivan (Kerry).

Captain Brian Fox

In other news we welcome the under-16 footballers and their mentors from Clonakenny/Moneygall to Semple Stadium this Sunday. They were in O Moore Park last Saturday night and they made plenty of noise as they cheered Tipperary onto victory. Same again please this week lads!

Tipperary overcome Laois in Round 3 of the Allianz League

posted by Friends of Tipperary FootballFriends of Tipperary Football on Sun Feb 26, 2017

Tipperary deservedly overcame a determined Laois side this evening in Portlaoise but a 60th minute Laois goal tested Tipperary’s resolve.

Tipperary 1-16 Laois 1-10

Tipperary stand to attention for Amhrán na bhFiann

Having struggled in the opening quarter of their first two games Tipperary, this time, exploded out of the blocks and raced into a three point lead by the 10th minute. Laois struggled to make any impact on the Tipperary defence and went sixteen minutes without troubling the scoreboard operator during the opening period of the first half but a late fightback left the half time score 0-5 to 0-6 in favour of the visitors.

Tipperary suffered a further setback in the opening period when full forward Michael Quinlivan was substituted after receiving treatment a number of times following a late tackle very early in the game and we wish him a speedy recovery.

Laois managed to draw level moments into the second half but points from Philip Austin, Conor Sweeney and Liam McGrath saw Tipperary regain a lead that they would not surrender.

Captain Brian Fox

Net-minder Evan Comerford was in fine form making two superb second half saves from both Donie and Paul Kingston. Donie’s misery continued shortly after when he was black carded by referee Niall McKenna.

Its over there!!! Kevin Fahey receiving instructions from Paul Fitzgerald and Liam Kearns

In the 50th minute a brilliant David Conway goal gave the home side serious hope as they reduced the gap to the minimum but Tipperary from here on in showed great maturity and ball-keeping skills as they refused to panic as Liam Casey, Emmet Moloney and Kevin Fahy all pointed before a late Kevin O Halloran free, came out of the floodlights and deceived Laois goalkeeper Graham Brody, somehow crawled over the line to give Tipperary a deserved six point win.

Liam Kearns’ men now look forward to a clash with Longford next Sunday in Semple Stadium and will hope that they can avenge last years defeat to the same opposition which severely dented our promotion hopes.

Scorers for Tipperary: Conor Sweeney 0-7 (5f), Kevin O’Halloran 1-0f, Philip Austin 0-2, Kevin Fahey, Emmet Moloney, Jimmy Feehan, Josh Keane (f), Liam McGrath, Brian Fox & Liam Casey 0-1 each.

For the first championship meeting between these two sides one has to travel back as far as 1889 when Bohercrowe, representing Tipperary, defeated Maryborough, representing Queens County, (Laois was known as Queens County since it was shired by Queen Mary in 1556 and the town of Portlaoise was called Maryborough until both were renamed following Irish independence) in only the second All Ireland senior football final 3-6 to 0-0, played in Inchicore in front of approximately 1,500.

Earlier that same year Bohercrowe, captained by Gil Kavanagh, defeated Carrick in the Tipperary senior football final, 2-7 to 0-0, and they later beat Cork in the Munster final 1-2 to 0-3. (source http://www.tippgaaarchives.com) As there were no representatives from Ulster or Connacht, both Tipperary and Laois qualified automatically for the All-Ireland final. This was to be the first of four All Ireland senior titles captured by Tipperary.

While the GAA was still in its infancy and the Gaelic revival was starting to grow it appears that the Catholic church weren’t too enamoured by Gaelic football back in 1889 judging by comments reportedly made by the Reverend Mr Rooney in the Newry Telegraph in April of that same year.

`At the usual weekly meeting of the Holy Family Confraternity in the Roman Catholic Church last Sunday, the Rev Mr Rooney, Assistant Spiritual Director, complained of a falling-off in the attendance and attributed this to the vile system of football playing which had come into vogue on Sundays and, which, he said was the cause of numbers of men and boys omitting to attend Mass and other devotions.

`This football playing on Sundays was, he had no doubt, an invention of the devil for the purpose of destroying souls. It was the cause of drunkenness and quarrelling on that day.

`The devil had been at the bottom of secret societies, such as Fenianism and Ribbonism, and when he found those detestable societies condemned and stamped out by the Catholic Church, the devil then invented this Sunday kicking, which he knew was doing so much harm.

`The Rev speaker implored every man and boy who heard him not to take part in these football matches, or even be present at them on Sundays and to do all in their power to put a stop to this vile habit.’ (source http://archive.is/Qi4m9 )

Thankfully Reverend Rooney can rest easy this weekend as the footballers of Tipperary and Laois clash on a Saturday!

In all Tipperary have played Laois four times in the championship with both sides victorious on two occasions.

The last time these two met in the championship was in round 3A of the qualifiers in 2014 when Tipperary, managed by current Laois boss Peter Creedon, overcame their Leinster opponents 3-17 to 4-9 to set up a last twelve meeting with Galway. With eight minutes remaining a David Conway goal levelled proceedings but two pointed frees and a late Barry Grogan goal ensured victory for Tipperary.

TIPPERARY: P Fitzgerald, G Mulhair, P Codd, C McDonald, C O’Riordan 0-2, R Kiely, P Acheson 0-1, S O’Brien, G Hannigan, M Quinlivan 0-3, J Coghlan, B Fox 0-2, B Grogan 1-3(0-1f), P Austin 0-4, C Sweeney 2-2(0-1f)

The last occasion that these two met under lights in Portlaoise in the league was a Division Two encounter in 2010, when Laois held out for a two-point win despite a brilliant second half comeback from Tipperary. At half time Laois had a comfortable 1-9 to 0-2 lead but inspired by a Philip Austin goal in the 57th minute Tipperary drew level with nine to play but just ran out of steam as points from Brendan Quigley and Donal Miller gave the verdict to the home side.

One point of interest from this encounter was the jersey worn by current Tipperary selector and then goalkeeper Paul Fitzgerald. Anthracite and yellow in colour, it only appeared on two other occasions when Mathew O’ Donnell wore it against Kildare in the league while Brendan Cummins donned it for the hurling league encounter with Waterford that same year. For some reason it was quickly retired and never seen again.

Tipperary Lose Out to Sligo in Round 2 of the Allianz League

posted by Friends of Tipperary FootballFriends of Tipperary Football on Sun Feb 12, 2017

Tipperary lost out today to a spirited Sligo side in the second round of the Allianz National Football League but the manner of their second half fightback does give manager Liam Kearns grounds for optimism

Tipperary stand to attention for Amhrán na bhFiann

Tipperary 1-16

Sligo 2-14

Following on from last week’s win over Antrim, Tipperary entered the contest full of confidence but it was the visitors, who drew with Armagh in their opening league encounter, that started brightly and in front of 749 spectators they registered two first half goals through Kyle Cawley and Niall Murphy.

Pre-match huddle

Cawley’s shot beat Evan Comerford in the ninth minute after great approach play from wing-forward John Kelly, who fed Niall Murphy and in turn he found the goal-scorer who left the Tipperary net-minder with no chance. Murphy and Cawley again combined for their second goal eight minutes from half time with the former blasting home this time.

Robbie Kiely sets up another attack

Things got worse for the Premier men in the second period when in the 45th minute Jimmy Feehan saw two yellow cards end his involvement and Philip Austin was stretchered off after scoring a very brave point in the 66th minute following a collision with Sligo goalkeeper Aidan Devaney.

We wish Philip Austin a speedy recovery from injury

A Michael Quinlivan goal sparked a Tipperary revival with seven to play and they did manage to cut the margin to one but following Kevin O Halloran’s pointed 45, eight minutes into injury time, referee Niall Ward elected to blow the full-time whistle.

Up to this point the Yeats county were well on top and even led by ten midway through the second period however Tipperary’s spirited fightback just fell short as they unfortunately ran out of time in a frightfully freezing Semple Stadium.

Liam Kearns’ men now have two weeks to prepare for their next game, an evening time clash with Laois, in Portlaoise on Saturday February 25th, who are managed by former Tipperary boss Peter Creedon.

Scorers for Tipperary: Michael Quinlivan 1-2 (0-2f), Conor Sweeney 0-5 (3f), Kevin O’Halloran 0-4 (2f, 1 45), Alan Moloney 0-2, Brian Fox, Philip Austin & Liam Boland 0-1 each.
