Well done:  Congratulations to Stephen O’Brien who played a very important part in Tipperary’s hard earned victory against Meath in the All Ireland Minor Football Quarter Final played in Portlaoise on Bank Holiday Monday.  Every good wish to this team as they go on to play Roscommon in Croke Park in the All Ireland Semi Final.
