All Ireland Minor Hurling Final

This Saturday evening our Minor Hurlers will travel to UPMC Nowlan Park in Kilkenny where they will play Kilkenny in the All Ireland Minor Hurling Final at 5.30pm. Having put in some very impressive performances throughout the course of the championship, Saturday evenings game will without doubt be their biggest test to date. The panel of players have prepared very well for the game and will travel to Kilkenny well in the knowledge that they have every chance of claiming the title, but they will also know that anything less than a 100 percent performance from every player will put them under severe pressure against a very formidable Kilkenny side who will not want to be defeated on home turf.

Tipperary GAA are hoping that a large Tipperary support will travel to the game and get behind our players for what will be a massive occasion for all involved. This game will be the last game for our inter county teams for 2024, so we are asking everyone to make one last push and get out your colours and head to the game. Tickets remain on sale through the GAA website and also in selected Centra and Supervalu stores across the county.

Tipperary Clubs Draw

The all new 2024 – 2025 Tipperary Clubs Draw has been launched and tickets can now be purchased from your local GAA club, the Tipperary GAA office or on the Tipperary GAA website. This draw provides substantial financial assistance to the clubs of the county, with up to 70% of every ticket going straight in to the clubs account. The new draw will have substantial cash prizes each month and is well worth the €100 entry.

Moycarkey Borris and Tipperary GAA Match Forecast Fundraiser

Last Friday evening, Moycarkey Borris and Tipperary GAA launched a brand new and very exciting fundraiser that is sure to be enjoyed by people right across the county and further afield.

Promoting Mental Fitness in the GAA

As a leading national sporting and community organisation, the GAA recognises that it can play a real and important role in supporting the emotional wellbeing of our members and communities.

We can do this by:

  • Creating a culture and providing activities that support healthy bodies, healthy minds, and healthy clubs
  • Helping end the stigma that prevents many people from accessing the help they so badly need when in times of distress
  • Developing resources and tools that help our members better understand the building blocks of positive mental and emotional health
  • Develop partnerships with organisations and charities such as the HSE, the PHA, Samaritans and Pieta House that we can signpost and direct our members towards in times of need
  • GAA Mental Health charter

The GAA’s Mental Health charter is a policy document that helps clubs develop a culture that supports and promotes emotional wellbeing. The resource is designed to reinforce the GAA’s GIVE RESPECT GET RESPECT initiative’s positive message and transfer it into the world of mental wellbeing. Available to download above, it outlines a club culture that is inclusive and open and one that holds dear the following values. Make sure your club adopts the charter today – just download the pack from the tab above and use the downloadable posters to support promotion within your club.

  • Mental Fitness packs

The GAA’s ‘Play in my Boots’ packs aim to de-stigmatise mental health by speaking to players in a sporting language familiar to them. Using the term ‘mental fitness’ to emphasise the positive nature of our emotional wellbeing, the packs also aim to remind the GAA population that maintaining mental fitness requires work and skill development in the same way as maintaining our physical fitness does.

These packs, developed in consultation with St. Patrick’s Foundation, Dublin, are designed especially for players from 12+ and coaches and contain useful information which can help us all work through the stresses we all experience, or maybe help someone else work through theirs.

  • Samaritans partnership

The GAA and Samaritans have come together to offer greater emotional support for people who are struggling to cope across the 32 counties.

The announcement was the first of a series of initiatives undertaken by the GAA to make sure its members have access to emotional support in these challenging times. For Samaritans, working with the country’s largest sporting and community organisation offers the opportunity to extend its important work even further across the country and into every parish on the island of Ireland.

The partnership aims to encourage people who are going through a difficult time to seek help, while also tackling the stigma associated with mental health problems. In doing so, both organisations hope that people will access the round the clock support provided by Samaritans.

While Samaritans’ vision remains that fewer people should die by suicide, the charity’s callers do not need to be suicidal to pick up the phone. People contact the helpline about everything from depression, relationship and family issues to loneliness, physical and mental health issues, abuse, financial worries and much more.
