All Ireland Minor Hurling Semi-Final

Congratulations to our Minor Hurlers who have now qualified for this year’s All Ireland Final thanks to a 1 point win over Galway in last Saturday’s semi-final which was played in the TUS Gaelic Grounds.

This was a very exciting game of hurling played at a very fast pace throughout and while Galway were reduced to 14 men at an early enough stage, they really battled and asked a lot of questions of James Woodlocks side. However Tipperary to their credit answered all the questions that were asked of them and won in the end by 1-24 to 0-26.

Scorers for Tipperary: Eoghan Doughan 0-8 (6fs, 1 65), Cillian Minogue 0-7, Euan Murray 1-4, Stefan Tobin 0-3, Killian Cantwell and Jake Donelon Houlihan (f) 0-1 each.

Tipperary: Daire English; Patrick Ryan, Shane Ryan, Cathal O’Reilly (captain); Jake Donelan Houlihan, Owen O’Dwyer, David Ryan; Tiarnan Ryan, Billy O’Brien; Darragh O’Hora, Adam Ryan, Euan Murray; Eoghan Doughan, Stefan Tobin, Cillian Minogue. Subs: Aaron Cagney for O’Hora (46), Paul Cummins for Adam Ryan (59), Killian Cantwell for O’Brien (60+3), Austin Duff for Cagney (69), Jack Cahill for Doughan (77), O’Brien for Tiarnan Ryan (77).

We will now play Kilkenny in the final which is due to take place on the weekend of June 29th. The venue for the game was agreed Following agreement from both Kilkenny and Tipperary to toss for home venue for the Electric Ireland GAA Hurling All-Ireland Minor Championship Final, the fixture details are as follows, Electric Ireland GAA Hurling All-Ireland Minor Championship Final Kilkenny v Tipperary, UPMC Nowlan Park, 5.30pm.

Tipperary Football Committee Thank Paul Kelly

Tipperary Football Committee would like to thank Paul Kelly and his management team for their service and commitment in taking over Tipperary’s senior football team in 2024. After exiting in the Tailteann Cup, Paul Kelly informed the Football board and the players that he and his management team were stepping down from their position and would not be taking the team forward into the 2025 season. We are sorry to lose Pauls services; he has brought another level of professionalism and awareness necessary to take Tipperary football to the next level. We wish Paul and his team all the best in the future and we are sure whatever team they take next will be very grateful for their expertise as was Tipperary in 2024.

FBD Insurance County Football League Finals

Last weekend saw the finals of the FBD Insurance County Football Leagues taking place. On Saturday evening, neighbours Clonmel Commercials and Moyle Rovers met in Fethard, with the Division 1 title on the line. As would be expected when these sides play, the game was very well contested all through and in the end it was Moyle Rovers who were victorious on a full time score of 2-07 to 1-06. On Sunday in Cahir, Rockwell Rovers had 7 points to spare over Galtee Rovers in the Division 2 final, winning by 5-07 to 1-12. Also on Sunday in Ned Hall Park, St Patricks and Fethard met to decide the destination of the Division 3 league title. In another well contested game it was Fethard who were that little more clinical in their finishing as they won in the end by 1-11 to 0-09.

Tipperary Referees

The Tipperary referees committee held their presentation night last week where referees who had refereed county finals were presented with their medals. Also on the night all referees were given new gear and umpires uniforms. It was also a special night for Newport referee Sinead McGlinchey who was welcomed into the Tipperary refereeing community. Sinead is currently our only female referee. We wish Sinead the very best in her new role, hoping this paves the way for a more balanced gender representation among our referees.
