FBD Insurance County Championships

What an eventful weekend we had across the county last weekend with the conclusion of the group stages of the FBD Senior, Premier Intermediate and Intermediate hurling championships taking place. With the majority of games still having major relevance on the direction the participating teams would take in the competitions, there was a real sense of anticipation as things got underway on Saturday afternoon. First into action were the Intermediate hurlers of Boherlahan Dualla and Shannon Rovers who met for their group 3 game in Templemore and what was a well contested game it was Boherlahan Dualla who claimed the win on a full time score of 3-15 to 0-13.

Also in the Intermediate hurling championship, Skeheenarinky and Upperchurch Drombane met in Cahir and it was the south side who claimed victory by 1-20 to 2-09.

The clash of Golden Kilfeacle and Ballingarry took place in New Inn and it was Golden who had a goal to spare over their opponents as they won by 1-15 to 0-15.

In Templemore the other group 2 game between Cappawhite and Kiladangan was also taking place and resulted in a fine 1-21 to 0-16 win for Cappawhite.

In group 1 of the Intermediate hurling championship, Kinocavilla Donaskeigh defeated Carrick Davins by 4-16 to 1-10 in Fethard, while in the same group in Boherlahan, Drom & Inch had 6 points to spare over Arravale Rovers as they won by 2-18 to 1-15.

In the Premier Intermediate hurling championship on Saturday, Thurles Sarsfields had a good 0-19 to 1-13 win over Sean Treacys in group 2, while in the same group Carrick Swan defeated Eire Óg Annacarty Donohill by 1-20 to 0-14 in Cloneen.

In group 3 of the Premier Intermediate hurling championship, Silvermines scored a last minute goal to overcome Newport by 3-12 to 1-12 in their game which was played in Templederry, while in the other game in the group, Burgess defeated Clonakenny by 3-12 to 0-12 in Nenagh.

In Borrisoleigh, Cashel King Cormacs and Ballina met for their group 1 tie and it was the West Tipperary side who were the happier at the end as they enjoyed a 2-23 to 0-26 point win and are now guaranteed to top the group.

The final two games in group 2 of the Senior hurling championship were also played on Saturday evening and in Borrisoleigh, Toomevara and Roscrea gave both sets of supporters lots to cheer about as they served up a thrilling game that in the end saw Toomevara having just 2 points to spare as they won by 1-20 to 1-18.

Up the road in Templederry Moycarkey Borris and Kilruane MacDonaghs again played out a highly entertaining game that resulted in a 1-23 to 1-21 win for the Mid Tipperary side.

On Sunday in the Intermediate hurling championship, Borrisokane had a comprehensive 1-23 to 1-10 win over Ballybacon Grange when they met in Holycross.

In the Premier Intermediate hurling championship, Gortnahoe Glengoole and Killenaule could not be separated when they met in Littleton with the game ending up on the scoreline of Gortnahoe Glengoole 0-19 to Killenaule’s 1-16.

In the same group of the Premier Intermediate hurling championship, Lorrha Dorrha defeated Portroe by 1-23 to 2-17 when they met in Cloughjordan. .

In the senior hurling championship there were wins for CJ Kickhams Mullinahone over Nenagh Eire Óg (2-21 to 1-16) in Templetuohy, While JK Brackens enjoyed a 3-24 to 2-16 win over neighbours Drom & Inch also in Templetuohy.

In The Ragg, Kiladangan continued their impressive form as they overcame Clonoulty Rossmore by 0-25 to 0-17. In Borrisoleigh, Templederry Kenyons defeated Holycross Ballycahill by 1-27 to 1-23, while in FRB Semple Stadium there were wins for Thurles Sarsfields over Borris-Ileigh by 2-20 to 1-11 and Loughmore Castleiney over Upperchurch Drombane by 2-15 to 0-17.

Unfortunately both events which were planned for the Dome on Saturday evening had to be cancelled as there are a number of other events taking place in the area on the same night that seem to have impacted on ticket sales for the event.

For further information you can contact the Tipperary GAA Office or Brian Fogarty on 087-8113012 or keep an eye on the Tipperary GAA social media for more details.


We extend our sincere sympathies to the family and friends of those who so tragically lost their lives in a fatal road crashes in Clonmel and Cashel. The tragic events put so much into context and make us all realise how things can change for so many in an instant. Our thoughts and prayers are with those who were injured and with all of those who mourn at this time. Ar dheis Dé go raibh a anamnacha dílis.

Applications sought for Dermot Earley Youth Leadership Initiative

The Dermot Earley Youth Leadership Initiative, delivered in partnership with Foróige and The University of Galway, seeks to empower GAA members aged 15 to 18 years-old to make a positive difference in their club, county, and communities through values-based leadership. During the programme the young GAA members gain aptitudes in essential leadership skills in a safe and supportive environment. Module one focuses on the individual and their leadership skills, building their self-awareness, community skills, values, and communication skills. Module two focuses on their ability to lead as part of a team enabling them to cultivate their skills further. Module three focuses on their individual leadership aspirations and offers the participants the opportunity to lead their own project within their community from conception to completion.

The GAA, Foróige and the University of Galway are aiming to expand and grow the initiative beyond the current registered clubs, and we are encouraging individuals interested in becoming programme facilitators to register for training which will enable them to run the programme within their clubs.

The upcoming training dates are below:
