County Minor B Football Final

Congratulations to Kilruane MacDonaghs who captured the county minor B football title over the weekend beating Moyne Templetuohy/Thurles Gaels on a scoreline of 2-11 to 1-3. Kilruane had plenty of experience in their backroom team with Tipperary senior hurler Niall O’ Meara coaching the side along with Pat Murphy who was a selector with the county minor footballers who won the All-Ireland final in 2011.

Kieran Bergin

We extend our best wishes to Kieran Bergin (Killenaule) who has decided to bring down the curtain on his inter-county career. Bergin won an All-Ireland senior hurling medal in 2016, two senior Munster championships (2015, 2016) as well as a Munster minor hurling medal in 2003. This year he opted out of the hurling panel before linking up with the footballers where he featured against Cork and Cavan. “The football is not going to continue past this year. I said I’d give it a go for one year and I think now I’m at a stage where I kind of want to focus on work and to focus on family life,” Bergin recently said in an interview with Tipp FM. Best of luck to Kieran in the future and thanks for his commitment to the Blue & Gold. 

Brian Fox

Congratulations to 2017 senior captain Brian Fox (Éire Óg Annacarthy) who has won an Annerville Award, which is sponsored by Bulmers, for his exemplary performances for the Premier this year. The Tipperary United Sports Panel picked twenty winners and also among them were Cahir’s Aisling McCarthy, who was integral to the Tipperary LGFA side that won the Division 3 league title as well as the All-Ireland intermediate crown and Jim Kennedy, Clonmel, who has been honoured for his services to Tipperary ladies football over the years. Pádraic Maher, following his superb performances for Thurles Sarsfields and Tipperary, has won the hurling award. Congratulations to all the winners.
