UPPERCHURCH DROMBANES FASTEST FAMILY FUNDRAISER

This Saturday sees 11 families battle it out in Thurles Dog Track for the title of Upperchurch Drombane’s Fastest Family. Teams of 3 will compete in a relay race. This is in addition to the usual programme of greyhound races and also live music at the end of the night. Everyone who buys a ticket will also be entered into the buster draw with large prizes. Tickets at €15 can be purchased from any of the competitors for what should be a very enjoyable evening. Racing will commence at 8pm.

2018 TIPPERARY MANAGEMENT TEAMS
Congratulations to Michael Ryan who has been re-appointed as Tipperary senior hurling manager for a 3 year term. He will once again team up with Declan Fanning, John Madden & Conor Stakelum. Also best wishes to Viv Downey who has been named as a selector for the Tipperary minor football team for next year. Hopefully both can guide Tipperary to further success over the next few years.
