Jimmy Cunningham Benefit Night

Excitement is building ahead of the Jimmy Cunningham benefit match this Saturday in Roscrea

Jimmy, served as masseur for the Tipperary football teams for many years, recently passed away after a battle with leukaemia. To help with the resultant medical costs and to relieve pressure on the family a Benefit Game has been organised in St. Cronan’s Park Roscrea on Saturday 25th May at 6pm which will be followed by refreshments, music and a monster auction in Phelan’s Market House Roscrea after the game.

Items on the night to be auctioned include signed jerseys from the Tipperary hurling and football teams, signed Munster and Leinster rugby jerseys along with trailers of timber and turf to name a few things.
This promises to be a fun filled evening with Jimmy having served with numerous teams both inside and outside the county and highly respected by all those who have had the pleasure of working alongside him down through the years. Players and management from all these teams will be in attendance on the night.
Tickets are priced at €10 and are currently on sale from committee members, all pubs in Roscrea and various GAA clubs across the county. Your support for this event would be greatly appreciated.

Some of the items up for auction include a signed Sydney Swans, Dublin, Kilkenny and Tipperary jersey as well as a beautifully crafted bog oak hurley by Pat McLoughney
