Junior (A) Hurling.

Our Junior (A) hurlers  had a good victory over Lattin  in this first round  game of the West championship  which was played in Sean Treacy Park  n Sunday afternoon last. The final score was Kickhams 2-18 Lattin 1-8. See match report on the Nationalist sports pages.

Co. Board Draw.

Think back to last year, especially September and those great victories and joyous celebrations in Croke Park and Semple Stadium. Well it takes a lot of effort both physically and financially to provide the proper structures throughout the Premier County at all levels from schools to clubs  right through to County teams, to reach those heights witnessed in September last. And now you have the opportunity to keep Tipp at the top , all you have to do to play your part is join the Tipperary GAA Clubs Draw which has ½ million euro prize fund, It’s a 12 monthly draw which costs 100 euro or 10 euro per month (2 months free). There are fantastic prizes including Cars, cash prizes,TVs, holidays etc each month and better still your club receives 50% ie 50 euro back  so you are helping at all levels. The draw fund returns in excess of 1 million to clubs and contributes large sums to coaching and games development throughout the County and your help is needed more than ever to ensure that  this funding continues. Club promoters will be visiting homes in the Parish over the coming weeks before the first draw which will be held on Friday the 20th of May and you can make up your mind at that time. Thank you for your continued support of our club.

We are again asking all players, mentors and supporters to please pay up their membership fees for this year.The day to day running of any club in these times is an onerous one and surely the very least that should be done by indiduals is to pay their membership to help maintain the status quo. Those players that have been injured over the years can testify how important it is to be insured, especially when surgical intervention is necessary. Please contact Margaret Hayes, Michael Shanahan, Richard Moloney or any Club Officer ASAP. Thank you.


We have updated our website We will continue to include up to date results & fixtures for all clubs teams as well as all other club activities. Why don’t you take a look and let us know what you think.
