North Tipperary Branch Official Launch

Last Night the North Tipperary Branch of the Friends of Tipperary Football Had Their Official Launch for 2018

Last night in The Thatched Cottage, Ballycommon, Nenagh the North Tipperary branch of the Friends of Tipperary Football had their official 2018 launch. With five players currently on the senior football panel from the division (Philip Austin, George Hannigan, Stephen Murray, Kevin O’ Halloran and Steven O’ Brien) it is hoped to recruit more supporters to the North Tipperary branch.

Friends of Tipperary Football chairperson Michael Power

Speaking on the night, the chairman of the Friends of Tipperary Football, Michael Power (Moycarkey Borris) thanked the large crowd for attending and spoke about the role of the Friends and the massive impact they have had on the development of Tipperary football since their inception. They crucially raise much needed funds that give our footballers the opportunity to compete with the other counties on the same basis and that they are not inhibited in anyway in terms of training and preparation. Power also had kind words for outgoing Tipperary Football Committee chairman Joe Hannigan (Shannon Rovers) for the massive impact he has had on Tipperary football and the huge role he has played in recent years.

Power spoke about the importance of North Tipperary players in the past and that all good Tipperary football teams have been backboned by players from the division.

Liam Kearns

Senior football manager Liam Kearns was also in attendance alongside players Kevin O’ Halloran and Stephen Murray. Kearns spoke about the fantastic management team currently in place and promised all those present that every cent raised by the Friends will be used wisely and none will be wasted.
