U/21(B) Football.
Our U/21 footballers  were beaten by Ballyporeen in the Co Final which was played in New Inn on Saturday evening last. We did not have the best of starts and were chasing the game from there on and at one stage were 11 points down. In fairness to this young team which has 13  young enough for next year, they never gave up and  were back to within 5 points at the break. Believe it or not we had an awful lot of possession in that first half but were guilty of over elaborating out around the field when the more direct approach may have seen a much closer game. The second half saw the lads try their best but you have to hand it to the South reps, their skill and speed and especially their superior fitness tipped the balance in their favour in the closing stages and they were deserving winners on the score 3-15 to 2-8. Our team and management, though disappointed with the defeat will have been happy to have had such a successful campaign which saw a west title being secured along the way to the Co. final and we wish them well in the upcoming U/21 (A) Hurling championship.

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 offer our deepest sympathies to Kickham Club phyisio Michael Cummins and family of New Line Dundrum on the recent death of his Aunt Nora Moroney late of Toomaline Doon Co. Limerick after a long illness bravely borne. Ar dheis Dé go raibh a hanam.


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. Tell family & friends that may be away and would like to keep up to date with club happenings.If you spot any errors let us know and we can correct them.
