Our senior hurlers were drawn in Roinn 1 Group 1 in the county championship along with Killenaule, Drom & Inch & JK Brackens. The top 2 from the group progress to the knockout stages of the county championship. The bottom placed team drops to Roinn 2 for next year. In the Mid Tipp championship we will play Loughmore in the quarter finals.

Club celebration night
1966 Junior Hurlers
A great night was had by all last Saturday in Drombane Hall. On the night the successful teams in 2015 were presented with their medals and the 1966 Mid junior 1 champions were honoured for their contribution to the club. Many thanks to our hardworking committee and all those who contributed to making the night a success.
A special thanks too, to Gerry Ryan (Duree) and Tipp FM’s Tom McGrath for their thrilling audio reenactment of the ’66 final and to Liam Noonan for his editing of the project. It’s one for the ages and is up on youtube.
