Minor Footballers Bow Out

posted by Friends of Tipperary FootballFriends of Tipperary Football on Mon Dec 14, 2020

After the excitement of the past few weeks, Tipperary football was brought back down to earth on Saturday evening when an excellent Clare team ran out easy winners of the Munster Minor Football Quarter Final.

From the start Tipperary struggled against a physically stronger Clare out fit and found themselves 6 points in arrears after the first 15 minutes before Jack Buckley got Tipperary off the mark with a free following a foul on the impressive Liam McCormack.

Tom Bourke produced a wonderful save in the 22nd minute and 2 minutes later Liam McCormack turned on the turbo and cut through the Clare defence before passing across the square for Toby Lambe to finish to the net.

In the 27th minute McCormack was at it again, swinging over a beauty from underneath the Old Stand to make it 0:08 to 1:02.

Game on or so it appeared but from the kick out, Clare again took control and popped over 3 points in as many minutes to take us in to the tea break at 0:11 to 1:02.

6 points down at half time was not an insurmountable lead but Tipperary needed a strong third quarter.

Unfortunately, the opposite happened and this extremely talented Clare side put the game to bed over the next 15 minutes, out-scoring Tipperary 1:09 to 0:01.

To their credit, Tipperary battled away to the end but the reality was they just couldn’t cope with the superior power and pace of the Banner men and when referee Jonathan Hayes signaled full stop the scoreboard read game 1:24 to 1:04.

Tipp scorers: T Lambe (1-0), J Buckley (0-2f), L McCormack(0-2).

Tipperary: Tom Bourke (JK Brackens), Sean O’Meara (Grangemockler/Ballyneale), James Morris (Clonmel Commercials), Kevin Cahalane (Lorrha/Dorrha), Darragh McVicker (Clonmel Og), Emmet Butler (Kilsheelan/Kilcash), Oisin Maher (Cahir), Toby Lambe (Holycross/Ballycahill, captain 1-0), Ciaran Condon (Cahir), Jack Nevin (JK Brackens), Jack Buckley (Cahir 0-2 frees), Sean Ryan (Upperchurch/Drombane), Eoin Craddock (Holycross/Ballycahill), Rory Collins (Moyle Rovers), Liam McCormack (Thurles Sarsfields 0-2).

Substitutes: Conor Neville (Kilsheelan/Kilcash) for Darragh McVicker (9 minutes), Conor O’Brien (Mullinahone) for Eoin Craddock (31 minutes), Tom Downey (Rockwell Rovers) for Toby Lambe (37 minutes), Anthony Keely (Clonmel Commercials) for Sean Ryan (41 minutes), Declan Nee (Clonmel Commercials) for James Morris (52 minutes).

Statement from Shane Ronayne & Tipperary Ladies Football

posted by Friends of Tipperary FootballFriends of Tipperary Football on Tue Dec 08, 2020

After the championship game vs Monaghan my term as Tipperary Ladies Football manager ended. I have decided that I will not be seeking a new term in charge of the team. I haven’t made this decision lightly and my association with this group of players and management team certainly made the decision extremely hard. I feel that after 4 years the time is right for a change. My time in charge of the team has been both enjoyable and successful. In the National League we gained back to back promotions in 2017 and 2018 and the players will in early 2021 commence their third campaign in a row in Division 1. Two All Ireland Intermediate titles were won in 2017 and 2019 and the performances in this year’s Senior championship gives great hope for the future of Tipperary Ladies Football. During my tenure I was fortunate to work with some fantastic people in my backroom team and I want to thank my S&C coaches James O’Leary, Craig Quinlan and Alan O’Connor, our goalkeeping coach Ger Lombard, our physios Maire Aherne, Ronan Crosse and Grainne O’Callaghan, and my selectors Ann Marie Ruby, Sarah Jane Darmody, Elaine Harte, Ed Burke and especially Tony Smith who was there for all my time with the group. A huge thank you to the County board led first by Biddy Ryan and then Lar Roche have always been so supportive of me and the team. I would like to thank David Anchell and his team in Camida for their generous support of the team every year. I want to thank Peter Creedon and Tipperary ETB for allowing Colaiste Dun Iascaigh in Cahir to be our training base. A special thank you to Paddy Lonergan in the Colaiste for his help and unwavering support. Thanks to all the other clubs who allowed us to use their facilities during my time involved. A big thank you to all the supporters who travelled around the country to give the team much appreciated encouragement and support. A word of thanks too to the media especially Tipp Fm and Tipp Midwest for their coverage of Ladies football and the courtesy they always showed me. Finally a sincere and heartfelt thanks to all the players in the group who have given so much time and commitment throughout the last four years, I have a huge amount of respect for you all and am eternally grateful for the great days we had as a group. I would like to wish all those involved in Tipperary Ladies Football all the very best for the future.

Yours in sport

Shane Ronayne
