CLUB ACTIVITY
The GAA’s management committee made the decision during the past week to suspend all club games until further notice. This directive applies to all ages and all grades across the country.

SENIOR HURLING
Our senior hurlers had a convincing win over JK Brackens in the mid quarter final. Upperchurch were in control in the first half yet the concession of a goal left us with just a 1 point lead at half time. A goal from Jack Butler 6 minutes after the restart saw us open a gap and this was maintained all the way to the finish. It was a very open game with 1-21 of our 1-26 total coming from play. Padraig Greene scored 0-10, Jack Butler 1-4, Paul Ryan 0-3 and the remainder was shared among 6 players. Final score on the day was 1-26 to 2-16. Two other quarter finals were played last weekend with Thurles Sarsfields and Moycarkey-Borris both progressing also.

UNDER 21 FOOTBALL
Congratulations to the under 21 footballers who put in a fine performance in their county B semi final against Mullinahone last Sunday. In atrocious conditions in Cashel we played against the wind in the first half and put in a serious performance to lead by 2 points at half time. Luke Shanahan being our main scorer included a goal from a penalty. The second half saw us take command, shutting down Mullinahone attacks, and when Conor Fahey raised a green flag 8 minutes in we now held a 7 point lead. In a fine team performance we held Mullinahone scoreless in the second half until the final play of the game and this helped us to victory but 2-9 to 0-7. Ballina beat Galtee Rovers in the other semi final. With club action currently suspended no date has been set for the final.

TIPPERARY GAA CLUBS DRAW
The second GAA clubs draw of the season will take place tonight (Fri Oct 9th) and will be broadcast live on Tipp FM at 8:30pm. Congratulations to Julie Gleeson from the club who was a big winner in last month’s draw.
