SENIOR FOOTBALL
The mid final v Loughmore-Castleiney is fixed for 12pm this Sunday in The Ragg. This is a fantastic achievement to reach the final in our first year at senior and all are asked to come out and support our lads and hopefully witness our first ever senior mid title win in hurling or football.

ALL IRELAND FINAL HOMECOMING
A huge thanks to all who came out to support the homecoming of the Liam McCarthy Cup to Upperchurch last Saturday night in what was one of the great occassions in the clubs history. Links to photos of the night can be found on facebook and clubify and also the full 2 hour broadcast on Tipp FM live from the village on the night. A big thanks also to those who helped ensure the smooth running of the night.
