MEDAL PRESENTATION NIGHT
All are invited to our 2016 medal presentation night which will take place in Drombane Hall at 8pm on Sunday Jan 1st. On the night medals will be presented by our victorious U18 mid football champions and our juniors hurlers who claimed mid, county and league honours. This will be followed by a club celebration night in John Ryan (Ned’s) newly refurbished hostelry.

MUNSTER JUNIOR HURLING FINAL
Speaking of our junior hurlers, they will take to the field in the Munster final on Sunday January 22nd. All roads that day head to Killeedy in West Limerick.

ANNUAL MOHER HILL RUN/WALK
Our annual Christmas Charity Fundraiser takes place on Sunday Jan 8th in Upperchurch Village with a run or walk around Moher Hill – a nice and challenging but entirely manageable 7k route. The walk begins at 2pm with the run starting at 2.30pm. Light refreshments will be served afterwards and all the funds raised this year will go to the Tipperary Brand of Down Syndrome Ireland – a very worthy cause, deserving of our support.

JANUARY COUNTY BOARD DRAW
The January County board draw will take place on the weekend of Jan 13th/14th in Oliver Ryan’s bar in Upperchurch Village – date and time to be finalised.

ANNUAL CLUB TABLE QUIZ
Our annual table quiz will take place in PJ Ryan’s Bar on Friday Feb 3rd. Funds raised will go towards defraying the costs of the Junior B hurling campaign so all support will be greatly appreciated.

CLUB AGM 2016
The club will hold it’s Annual General Meeting in the clubhouse this Sunday Dec 4th at 6pm. All members are encouraged to attend if possible

JUNIOR HURLING
Congratulations to our junior hurlers who defeated Limerick’s Murroe-Boher in the munster semi final last Sunday in Killeedy GAA pitch. In a tough encounter Upperchurch raced into an early lead and appeared to be in control before a Murroe goal just before half time reduced our lead to just 1 point. A further goal for Murroe early in the second half put them ahead but Upperchurch responded quickly with a TJ Butler goal putting us back in front, a lead they never relinquished. Upperchurch held on to win on a scoreline of 1-12 to 2-8. Afterwards Michael Ryan was named man of the match by the organisers. They now qualify for the Munster final against the Cork champions Whitechurch to be played in January. Thanks to all who made the trip down to south-west Limerick and also Killeedy GAA for their hospitality.
