Munster Senior Hurling Championship

Tipperary’s Munster Senior Hurling Championship campaign got off to a disappointing start last Sunday afternoon in the TUS Gaelic Grounds as we suffered a 15 point defeat to a very impressive Limerick side on a full time score of 2-27 to 0-18. This result will come as a major hammer blow to players, management, and supporters. However, all focus must now turn to another away assignment this Saturday evening in Walsh Park, when we take on a Waterford side who will be buoyed up by their recent victory over Cork in Round 1 of the championship. The game throws in at 6pm on Saturday and will be broadcast live on GAAGO and Tipp FM, there will also be full match updates on the Tipperary GAA X account. I would appeal to all Tipperary supporters who have tickets for the game to travel to Waterford on Saturday and get behind the players in what is now a very important and indeed must win game.

Munster Under 20 Football & Hurling Championships

Our under 20 footballers exited the Munster championship following defeat to Kerry last Wednesday evening on a full time score of 1-15 to 1-10. Tipperary, despite losing, will be happy that they put it up to the Kingdom in the opening half. Albeit outplayed by Kerry in the third quarter, they rallied late on with the impressive Orrin Jones and substitute Daithi Hogan adding 1-4 to the Tipp total.

Scorers for Tipperary: O Jones 0-4 (0-2fs), D Hogan 1-1, R McGrath 0-2 (‘45s), S Ryan (f), M Freaney, C Smith 0-1 each.

TIPPERARY: R McGrath; J O’Neill, E O’Connell, D Spillane; C King, S O’Meara, D O’Brien; J Higgins, E Doocey; T Charles, J Lawrence, M Freaney; O Jones, T O’Connor, S Ryan.
Subs: K Butler for O’Meara, inj (11), D Hogan for Ryan (ht), P O’Keeffe for Higgins (44), C Smith for O’Connor (49), N O’Connor for O’Brien (52).

The Tipperary under 20 hurlers will play Cork in Round 4 of the Munster Under 20 Hurling Championship this Friday May 3rd at 7:30pm in FBD Semple Stadium Thurles. Having already defeated Limerick and Waterford in the opening two rounds, both players and management will be well in the knowledge that Friday’s game will be another big challenge for the group. The game will be broadcast live on TG4, but I would encourage as many Tipperary supporters as possible to head to the game to support the team.

Munster Minor Hurling and Football Championships

The Tipperary Minor Footballers played Clare on Tuesday evening (April 30th), in the Phase 1 Final. Having overcome the same opposition in the group stages, Tipperary were hopeful of a similar outcome in this game. However on this occasion Clare proved too strong and won by 2-12 to 0-10. Both teams have now qualified for the knockout stages of the competition where Tipperary will play Kerry next Tuesday evening at 7pm in FBD Semple Stadium.

The Tipperary Minor Hurlers will be hoping to make it three wins from three this Thursday evening when they welcome Clare to FBD Semple Stadium for a 7pm throw in. We wish players and management the best of luck.

GAA clubs can win €5,000 in ‘eir for all’ Poc Tapa Challenge

eir, Ireland’s leading telecommunications provider, is calling on GAA clubs across the country to take part in the ‘eir for all’ Poc Tapa Challenge to be in with a chance to win up to €5,000 for their club and the chance to play on the hallowed turf of Croke Park on All Ireland Semi-Final Day.

Building on the success of last year’s inaugural competition, the competition forms part of eir’s continued sponsorship of the GAA Hurling All-Ireland Senior Championship, celebrating the speed and skill of modern hurling. The Poc Tapa challenge is inspired by the age-old “Poc Fada” competition and has been reimagined to reflect the speed of the modern hurling championship.

The competition is based on the quickest team of up to six people to pass a sliotar around the four corners of a pitch. The team that gets the ball back to base in the fastest time will win the competition.

Elite GAA players Declan Hanon, Limerick, Shane Kingston, Cork, Eoghan O’Donnell, Dublin, and Conor Whelan, Galway, were on hand to film an explainer video in Croke Park to show participants how it’s done which can be found HERE.

This competition is open to every GAA club in Ireland, and is designed for all ages, in any venue from local clubs to the national stadium. To enter the ‘eir for all’ Poc Tapa challenge, teams must film a video of their fastest time captured from the centre of a pitch, with the stopwatch used held in frame at the beginning and end of the clip. The video must be uploaded to either Twitter (@eir) or Instagram (@eir.ireland) using the hashtags #eirforall and #PocTapa.

The fastest team in the country will win €5,000 for their club, and a chance to play in Croke Park on All-Ireland Semi-final Day. There are also many other great prizes on offer for participating clubs.
