Training for under 6,8 and 10 will take place on Saturday 27th,  at 10.00am.

Training for under 12 continues on Wednesday evening at 6.30.

Other groups: Training as advised my mentors.

Everyone in Durlas Óg was deeply saddened by the news that Baby Sean Doran passed away last week. We would like to pass on our sympathy to his family at this very sad time.

Jimmy Coppinger wrote this poem about  Durlas Óg some time ago, and it expresses the ethos  of our club.

Durlas Óg, 
by Jimmy Coppinger.

Beside the Railway Station  by Garryvickeleen,
Above the deep dark quarry,
Lies a lovely field of green,
By Bohernanave I travelled,
At Relic Breeda stopped to pray.

Then on through Abbey Road I went,
To see our youth at play.
There were hundreds hurling in the field,
They came from all around
 I heard hurleys  clash,
And the song of the ash,
Ring o’er the hurling ground.

Here mentors keen,
Were to be seen,
To coach, to lead and guide,
Our noble youth in ways of truth.
Tipperary’s hope and pride,
The tree has grown,
Brave  men have sown,

Way back in ’79.
What Deeds are done,
What glories won,
When willing hands combine.
Their aim, their fame,
Is “Play the Game”
What ere the odds may be,
Honour and truth,
For our Irish Youth,
Twill bring them victory.

Lesser games,
Or foreign names,
Will always be in vogue
Make sure you will always be true,
To the Spirit of Durlas Og.

Let the Rebel Red,
And the peaceful white,
Be always to the fore,
You’ll be proud some day,
To stand up and say,
Those colours  once I wore.

A Ogáinig  áille,
Uaisle Ó,
Éirig suas is tóg do nua camán
Bain clú is cáil,
As imirt le Dúrlas Óg.
