Training continues on Saturday morning at 10.00 am.

Under 10
The under 10’s had an exciting week beginning with former Tipperary Goalkeeper Brendan Cummins on Wednesday evening last.  The boys were hanging on his every word and were completely engrosses in the training session. After the training session Brendan took time to answer questions from the lads.  We would like to thank Brendan sincerely for giving so generously of his time, it was much appreciated.

On Saturday we hosted Toomevara, and we saw two very good, competitive games with sportsmanship and skill to the fore throughout.  Well done to all.

Under 12
Team 3 had a round robin game at home last Wednesday and beat Moyne Templetuohy to qualify for a mid semi final. Team 2 had no game. Team 1 had a walk-over v Moyne Templetuohy.

The following Durlas Og notes were published in this weeks Tipperary Star:

Under 10
On Sunday morning last, we played a challenge match against Cork Sarsfields.  All games played were of a very high standard with players from both sides showing the full array of skills and courage which may well see them line out for Tipp and Cork in years to come. Outstanding performances on the day from Mikey and John-Joe Ryan, Devon O Brien, Liam Gleeson and George Barry set the tone for Durlas Og. A special word of thanks to our incredible parents (mammies!) who produced a veritable feast for all our visitors. It really is reassuring to be able to rely on such great support and goodwill from the parents of our boys on occasions like this

Under 12
Hurling training continues on Tuesdays & Saturdays.

Under 14
We have our 2 teams in the mid football finals Saturday in Templetuhoy.Team 2 will be playing Moyne/Templetuhoy ar 11.0am Team 1 playing Upperchurch at 1.45. All support appreciated.

Under 16
Training as advised.

Clothing Drive – Féile Fundraiser
We  would like to thank all those who contributed to our clothing collection, your support is greatly appreciated.  If you haven’t already done so it might be time for a clear out, and you can donate any unwanted clothes, shoes, purses, duvet covers and pillow covers. Put the items in black bags and leave them at the clubhouse doors during training and match times. We are running this until June 1st. It is a great way to help our lads on the road to Féile. Thank you.

The following Durlas Og notes were published in this weeks Tipperary Star:

Under 8 and Academy
Training continues as usual on Saturday morning at 10.00.

Under 10
On Sunday May 21st at 11.30am we are hosting Cork Sarsfields.  All players are to assemble at 11.10 am.  If any parents can assist in the making and  distribution of sandwiches, cakes etc., after the game, it would be greatly appreciated.  They looked after us really well in the corresponding fixture in Glanmire two years ago  when our boys were under 8s. As they will be bringing big numbers we are hoping for a full attendance. Training will proceed as normal on Saturday 20th.

Under 12
Under 12 Team 1 football. We lost our county semi-final after extra time to a very good Nenagh side, on a score line of 2-07 to 2-04. Our boys played their hearts out and just came up short.  Congratulations to Nenagh. That completes our football for this year.

Hurling training times will be advised by team mentors.

Under 14
Durlas Óg u 14 Féile Fundraiser
We are organising a clothing collection to help fundraise for the Under 14s Feile Team.  We would ask that anyone who has unwanted clothes, shoes, purses, duvet covers and pillow covers, put the items in black bags and leave them at the clubhouse doors during training and match times. We are running this until June 1st so its time to do a big clearout!    Please support our clothing drive.

Under 14 training as advised by mentor.

Under 16
It was a busy week for our U16 panel. First up was the Mid A Football final in Boherlahan where we were beaten by an impressive Moycarkey side. Lady luck certainly did not smile on us as we lost Paddy Creedon through injury in the first few , and then Henry Fogarty had to leave the field half way through the first half after a clash of heads. Despite these setbacks we were still in the game at half time when we trailed by 3. Moycarkey were more dominant in the second half and ran out deserving winners in the end. It was a disappointing way for these footballers to end their time with Durlas Og, as they had won the U12 and U14 competitions as well as winning the Feile Peil two years ago. There was little time for licking wounds as we took part in the James Stephens Hurling tournament in Kilkenny on Saturday. We lost to Kilmacud Crokes but defeated Moycarkey, in the group stages and so qualified for the Shield Final where we overcame Mount Sion from Waterford in the final. Training continues as advised by mentors.

Under 8 and Academy
Training as usual on Saturday morning.

Under 10
Hurling and Football training on Wednesday evening at 7.00pm, and hurling training continues on Saturday morning at 10.00am.

Under 12
We competed in three u 12 mid football finals last Saturday in Holycross.

Our team 3 were first up against Moyne and put up a great display against a strong Moyne team just losing out on a score line 4.05 to 3-0. The score line didn't do justice to the effort this young side put in and they kept going until the final whistle. Well done to all involved.

Team 2 were up next against a classy Upperchurch "A" team in the group 3 final.

The score line finished 5-09 to 2-04.

Our lads again put in a great effort but had to give way to a strong Upperchurch team. Well done to all.

Last up was the group 1 final against Moycarkey.

After going behind to an early Moycarkey onslaught of 1-3 to no score  the boys showed great determination in  getting back into the game after some wayward shooting. We finally ran out winners 2-06 to 1-07 to retain the title.

Well done to all. We hope to play the winner of the north division this coming weekend. Details to follow later.

Training continues as advised by management.

Under 14
Having confirmed their place at Feile, the under 14s are currently fundraising to fund their participation in the competition. Guess the score cards for the upcoming Cork v Tipperary match are available from our under 14s, please support!
