November 8, 2018

5-Year Plan: On Wednesday, 29th April, the club will be holding an open meeting in Moatfield, starting at 8.30pm, to begin the development of a 5-Year Plan. Anyone from the parish, be it a player, coach, parent, supporter, members and non-members are invited to attend and give their views on what should be in the plan, which will deal with both on and off the field matters. Tipperary County Board will be sending a facilitator to run the meeting so everyones views can be heard and noted and then developed into a plan which will help us set a path for the future. This is an important meeting and we ask you to make a special effort to attend.
