The following notes were published in this weeks Tipperary Star:

Academy and Under 8
Our under 6 participated in a blitz in Dr. Morris Park last Saturday. They enjoyed a great mornings hurling. The fabulous weather was matched by standard of hurling from all the teams.  The skill, determination and ability shown by the under 6s was a joy to see and shows that the future of hurling in Tipperary is in safe hands.

Training as usual on Saturday morning at 10.00.

Football (Under 8) at the earlier time of 6.30 on Wednesday evening.

Under 10
ast Saturday we travelled to Holycross to participate in the “The Bob Stakelum Memorial u.10 Hurling Tournament”.   We fielded one team and they played games against Newcastle West, Ballyduff and Mungret.   We won two of our three games, and were unlucky not to get to the final, being beaten by Clough – Ballacolla in the semi-final. Clonoulty emerged winners from the final, losing to Clough – Ballacolla.  Holycross won the shield competition.  We wold like to thank Holycross for a wonderful tournament and great hospitality. Our boys enjoyed a great mornings hurling in fabulous weather, go raibh maith agaibh.

Football training at 6.30 on Wednesday evening, (please note change of time)

Under 12
Our U12 teams had mixed fortunes in the Shield semi finals last week. On Tuesday our A team travelled to Boherlahan and defeated the hosts. We lead by three points at the break  and pushed on to run out fairly comfortable winners in the end. There were good performances from Joe Dwan who scored three goals, Cian Stakelum, Jordan Fahy and Sean Collins. Our B team played Thurles Gaels on Saturday and in a fine match we trailed by two points at half time. Gaels stretched their lead to seven  points but a good fight back narrowed the deficit to three. However time ran out on us. There were good performances from Dean Fanning, Liam Kenny, Conor Fogarty and Aaron Mulcaire

Under 14.

Our second team lost out to Gortnahoe in the 14 B shield last Thursday. Aided by the strong wind and hill in the first half the home side built up a lead we could not peg back. This group of players achieved a lot throughout the year and were a great group to work with.  Mentors and players alike wish Jim Dwyer a speedy recovery.
