All Ireland Minor Hurling Final

Our minor hurlers travelled to Kilkenny last Saturday evening where they took on the home team in the All Ireland Final and what an occasion it turned out to be.

Playing in front of a big Tipperary following, the players set out in a very determined fashion right from the throw in and despite being reduced to 13 players before half time, they showed a maturity and resilience that was a joy to see. The game was level at half time, full time and again at the break in extra time. However, Tipperary kept fighting and despite their numerical disadvantage they powered on in the closing stages to overcome Kilkenny on a full time score of 2-17 to 3-12. The scenes of joy and raw emotion that were seen at the final whistle were unbelievable and the performance of this group of young men can only be described as unprecedented. Following the game, GAA President Jarlath Burns presented the Irish Press cup to Tipperary captain and proud Holycross Ballycahill man Cathal O’Reilly.

As is tradition with victorious Tipperary minor teams, a homecoming took place on Saturday night on the steps of the cathedral in Thurles and once again the large number of Tipperary supporters who turned out to greet the players and team management was excellent. On Monday evening the team attended a very special homecoming event hosted by the Holycross Ballycahill club and once again large numbers turned out to show their support and appreciation for the players and team management.

We extend our sympathies to former County Chairman and current Munster Council Delegate, Sean Nugent on the passing of his brother Seamus who was laid to rest on Wednesday July 3rd. We also remember legendary GAA commentator Mícheál Ó Muircheartaigh who passed away last week. Micheál’s ability to paint a picture with words was unrivalled, and his rare combination of wisdom and wit was something special. Many Tipperary supporters will remember his numerous witty one liners including how he described a battle between Pat Fox and Joe Rabbitte “Pat Fox has it on his hurl and is motoring well now, but here comes Joe Rabbitte hot on his tail … I’ve seen it all now, a Rabbitte chasing a Fox around Croke Park!” Or how he told the story of purchasing a greyhound from Pat’s father “Pat Fox out to the 40 and grabs the sliotar. I bought a dog from his father last week. Fox turns and sprints for goal … the dog ran a great race last Tuesday in Limerick … Fox, to the 21, fires a shot – it goes to the left and wide … and the dog lost as well.” Micheál was an amazing man and he will be sadly missed. We extend our sympathies to his family and many friends at this sad time.
