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

Academy and Under 8.

Training continues on Saturday morning at 10.00am.


Under 10

We travelled to Borrisoleigh on Friday evening last, for a challenge  game under lights.  We would like to thank Borrisoleigh for their kind invitation.  We enjoyed good, evenly matched, competitive games, with plenty of skill evident on both sides.

We will be training on Saturday morning at 10.00.


Under 12 and Under 14.

Training as advised by mentors.


Under 16. 

Saturday 7 October saw the curtain come down on our U16 season when we defeated Cappawhite in the Co A final by 2 19 to 1 15.. But it also marked the end for a number of our players with their time with Durlas Og.


This group of players have given great service to Durlas Og and indeed they have been very successful with the club they joined as 7 or 8 year olds. In competition they won many titles.As U 12s they won the Mid Football, before losing out in the Co Final. 2015 was a fantastic year for them when as U14s they won the Feile Peil and represented Tipperary  in the All Ireland Feile Peil held in the South East. That year also saw them win the Co Football and Hurling double, a feat last achieved by Durlas Og in 1991.They rounded off their careers with the club by winning Mid and County titles at U16 Hurling this year.


They have been an excellent group of players, not just because of their successes, but also because of their great application to the games and their attitude to mentors, match officials etc while representing the club. They have been successful at both Hurling and Football and indeed are excellent role models for future generations of players from Durlas Og. So to Sean Collins, Kieran Costello, Joe Dwan, Jordan Fahy,  Cathal Hayes, Jack Lanigan, David Mawe, Eoin Purcell, Eoghan Ryan, Cian Stakelum, Patrick Stakelum and Peter Wall, we say Well Done, Keep playing Gaelic Games, and best of luck in your future careers. Go neirí an t-ádh libh and slán go fóill.
