Club and inter-county draws

posted by Friends of Tipperary FootballFriends of Tipperary Football on Tue Oct 08, 2019

The draws have been made for the 2020 Munster championship as well as the next round of club fixtures

The draws for the 2020 provincial championships took place this morning and in Munster, Tipperary have been paired with Clare.

New manager David Power was handed a tough draw this morning in the 2020 Munster championship as his charges have been paired with the Banner county. The sides met in the final game of this year’s Allianz national football league with Clare emerging as winners, 3-15 to 1-19, a result that condemned the Premier to division 3 football for next year. Indeed, in 2018 the sides drew in Ennis in the league, 0-11 apiece, and this ultimately cost Tipperary promotion to division 1 for the first time in their history. The competitive nature of these games provide ample evidence that Tipperary will have to be at their best if they are going to proceed to the next round.

The full draw is as follows:

Quarter final 1 – Waterford v Limerick

Quarter final 2 – Clare v Tipperary

Semi-finals – Winner of quarter final 1 v Winner of quarter-final 2

                           Cork v Kerry

We extend our best wishes to Cahir stars Aishling Moloney and Aisling McCarthy who have been nominated for a TG4 LGFA All-Star award following their outstanding performances for the Premier in the All-Ireland intermediate championship this year. The winners will be announced on November 16 in the Citywest Hotel, Dublin.


David Power is the new Tipperary Senior Football Manager

posted by Friends of Tipperary FootballFriends of Tipperary Football on Wed Sep 25, 2019

Last night at a meeting of the Tipperary County Board, David Power, Kilsheelan Kilcash, following a recommendation from the officers of the Tipperary Football Committee, was ratified as the new Tipperary senior football manager succeeding Liam Kearns on a two-year term

Manager David Power speaks to the under-20s in 2018

David Power will be joined by Michael McGeehin on the coaching team. McGeehin, a native of Donegal, was previously involved as a coach during Peter Creedon’s term and is also a director of Coaching Ireland.

Another Donegal man, Charlie McGeever, is also part of the set-up. McGeever managed the Tipperary minor footballers when they last reached the All-Ireland decider in 2015 and famously led Clonmel Commercials to the Munster senior club crown, the only Tipperary side to do so.

Former Dublin defender Paddy Christie is also a member of the coaching team and he is highly regarded in Dublin GAA circles for his work with Ballymun Kickhams. Former Clare goal-keeper Joe Hayes and performance analysis Tommy Toomey complete an impressive backroom team. 

We wish David and the entire management team the very best in the years ahead and have no doubt that they will carry on the great work of Liam Kearns.

posted by Friends of Tipperary FootballFriends of Tipperary Football on Sun Sep 15, 2019

We wish to extend our congratulations to the Tipperary LGFA intermediate team on their stunning win today in the TG4 All-Ireland intermediate final


Claiming their second All-Ireland intermediate crown since 2017 and the county’s third All-Ireland title in 28 days the Premier ladies proved themselves once again worthy winners of the Mary Quinn Memorial Cup as they defeated Meath 2-16 to 1-14.

This is third occasion that Tipperary have won the intermediate title having previously captured it in 2008, 2017 and again today.

Angela McGuigan and Aisling McCarthy provided the crucial goals while player of the match, Ashling Moloney, pointed on eight occasions as Shane Ronayne’s charges made a swift return to the senior ranks.

Bitterly disappointed following their relegation last year the players were very focused and determined to regain their senior status and prove themselves against the best teams in the country.

Tipperary: L Fitzpatrick, L Spillane, M Curley, E Cronin, S Lambert (captain), B Condon, C Kennedy, A McCarthy, A.R. Kennedy, O O’Dwyer, A Moloney, N Lonergan, A Fennessy, A McGuigan, C Condon.

Subsitutes: L Dillon for Cronin (H/T), R Daly for Condon (43), O Winston for McGuigan (50).

Meath: M McGuirk, K Newe, O Duff, S Powderly, O Byrne, S Wall, S Ennis, M O’Shaughnessy (captain), A Cleary, V Wall, M Thynne, E Duggan, F O’Neill, B Lynch, K Nesbitt.

Subs: O Lally for Powderly (46), S Grimes for Duggan (47), M O’Brien for Byrne (47), N Gallogly for Ennis (56), E White for S Wall (58).

Scorers – Tipperary: A Moloney 0-8 (1 free), A McCarthy 1-2, A McGuigan 1-1, O O’Dwyer 0-2, C Condon 0-1, C Kennedy 0-1, A Fennessey 0-1.

Meath: E Duggan 0-5 (3 frees), V Wall 0-4, F O’Neill 1-1, A Cleary 0-1, K Nesbitt 0-1, B Lynch 0-1, S Grimes 0-1 (1 free).
