County Coiste na nÓg Notes – January 27th 2017

Excitement builds across our proud County as preparations are put in place for the year ahead. Of course a big part of that excitement is thanks to an unforgettable 2016 for Tipperary GAA. Huge thanks goes to our victorious All-Ireland Senior & Minor Hurlers, we wish both Michael Ryan & Liam Cahill the very best in 2017. The scenes witnessed in Croke Park weren’t just confined to that great day. Our footballers confounded systems and critics, while delighting the supporters of football across not only the County but the country with their passionate, confident style of play. We thank Liam Kearns & all involved, it certainly makes clubs jobs easier thanks to your success.

The task at hand now is to harness that excitement and energy, some players will play their last juvenile games before moving on to adult level. We hope they enjoy the year and continue to play an important role in their club. You also have the new breed bursting to play their first official match. A sight which should fill each club with hope as the debate begins as to whether that number eleven has the potential to be your next star.

On to the business of setting up the structures for another busy year, club grading and the much discussed club amalgamations. Each club has submitted their teams, numbers and intentions for 2017. Each division’s Coiste na nÓg and indeed the County Coiste na nÓg has poured over the information provided culminating in the grading for the year ahead being confirmed at last week’s marathon committee meeting in Hayes Hotel, Davin Room. Prior to this three seperate meetings were held for clubs seeking to amalgamate. Clubs had to furnish the Coiste na nÓg with a detailed breakdown of each club’s active members. Looking at the information given and after much discussion where one team had insufficient numbers to field in their age group, e.g a club had 7 players for under 14 their application to join with another club was sanctioned.

Neil’s Drive As He Did Five

The County Coiste na nÓg is forever indebited to a man who has given some five years of service to the running of so many competitions both County & Inter-County at juvenile level. Neil Ryan has stepped down as an Officer of Tipperary’s Coiste na nÓg. His dedication and natural flair helped him negotiate his duties as PRO for some four years before a final year as treasurer. Neil would have taken notes on a lot of those players who climbed the famous steps in Croke Park last September. For those fortunate to be collecting winning medals at the end of the year, Neils humour and unflappable demeanor made for a most memorable occasion. We wish him well in the future and hope his array of talents will see him work within our association again in the future.

Here is the confirmed Football grading for 2017’s U16’s & U14’s. We will have our U12’s next week along with a brief preview with a look back to 2015’s winners to see what the form guide throws up.
