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.

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.

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.

The Friends of Tipperary Football is a support group to all underage and adult Tipperary Football squads. As a fundraiser, the Friends are organising a Euromillions plus lotto syndicate. Membership of the syndicate costs just €20. The Friends now intend to select 14 sets of numbers which they will play in every draw, commencing September 1st, 2020 up to and including April 30th, 2021. With 1960 chances of winning it’s well worth a punt. Your support for Tipperary Football would be much appreciated.
