SENIOR FOOTBALL
Best of luck to our senior footballers who face Aherlow tomorrow(Saturday) in the second game of the county championship. After a tough first day out against Kilsheelan we will be looking for a victory against our west Tipp opponents. Throw in is at 2pm in Dundrum. The game will be streamed live on our facebook page.

SENIOR HURLING
We got the senior hurling campaign off to the best possible start last Sunday with a 5 point victory over Burgess in Dolla. Playing against a strong breeze in the first half we were unable to convert a lot of our chances and went in at the break 2 points in arrears. Burgess were dogged opponents and still led by 3 approaching the midway point of the 2nd half. But then we found an extra gear and were able to reel off 10 points to Burgess’ 2 and win on a scoreline of 0-21 to 0-16. In the other group game Borris-Ileigh and Toomevara played out an entertaining draw. On Sat 4th August we take on Toomevara at 7pm in Semple Stadium and the game will be streamed live by the Tipperary county board for anyone who can’t get a ticket. Note the change of time from last weeks notes.

MINOR HURLING
Our minor hurlers made it 2 wins from 2 last night when they defeated Na Sairsealaigh Óg by 3-23 to 0-11 in Thurles. They are back in action next Wednesday night 5th Aug at 7:30 in Drombane where Gortnahoe-Glengoole will be their opponents. The following week we face Moycarkey-Borris in the final group game. We currently sit top of the group with Loughmore on 4 points.

SENIOR FOOTBALL
Unfortunately we came up short against Kilsheelan-Kilcash last Sunday in the first round of the county championship in New Inn. Kilsheelan were on top in the first half and took a 4 point lead into the break. This could have been more except for a penalty save by Paul Ryan in the opening minutes. Our lads upped the pressure and good work saw Niall Grant dragged down by Kilsheelan goalie Evan Comerford and a penalty awarded, which Paul Ryan dispatched to the net. Upperchurch dominated the next period but were only able to draw level and it was Kilsheelan who finished stronger, reeling off the final 4 points of the game to prevail on a scoreline of 0-13 to 1-6. Footage of the game can be viewed on our facebook page. Our next game will be against Aherlow on Saturday August 1st at 2pm in Dundrum.

SENIOR HURLING
This Sunday the hurling championship starts as we face Burgess in Dolla at 1pm. As with the football last week admission will be limited to ticket holders only to maintain a max attendence of 2100 people. Assuming internet from Dolla is strong enough we are teaming up with Burgess to livestream the game on www.facebook.com/BurgessGAA There will also be live score updates on our twitter page. In last years championship we emerged victorious by the slimmest of margins (0-21 to 1-17) so a great game is in store. Best of luck to players and management. Our following game will be against Toomevara on Sat August 8th at 3pm in Semple Stadium.

MINOR HURLING
Well done to our minor hurlers who got off to a strong start in the mid when they defeated Loughmore-Castleiney 3-17 to 0-15 last Wednesday in Drombane. There were some fine displays on show and gives us momentum heading into next Thursday’s(July 30th) clash with Na Sairsealaigh Óg in the Outside Field Thurles at 8pm. The mid board has decided that no supporters will be allowed to attend games for the next few weeks so entry is restricted to players, officials and one parent or guardian of each player.
