Dear Tipperary Supporter

Allianz Football League

From Tipperary GAA Scene by Jonathan Cullen, County Board PRO

Our senior footballers travelled to Fermanagh last weekend where they took on the host county in the Allianz Football League. For Tipperary the game and the opposition was always going to be a tough assignment and that is how it turned out to be as Fermanagh were much the better side from start to finish as they recorded a 2-11 to 0-08 win. This defeat now puts our senior footballers under a lot of pressure to hold on to their Division 3 status and perhaps dropping back down to Division 4 may not be the worst thing for this group who have just been unable to find their sparkle so far this year.

Tipperary’s next game will be against Offaly on Saturday March at 6pm and tickets for that game can now be purchased via the official GAA website.

Allianz Hurling League

FBD Semple Stadium will play host to the Round 4 clash of Tipperary and Waterford this Saturday evening at 7.15pm. Having registered 3 wins from 3 games so far in the league, Liam Cahill will be hoping his charges will keep the winning run going against a Waterford side who will also be eager to claim the points. With a big crowd expected to be in attendance, supporters are advised to get to the venue on time so as to avoid any unnecessary delays. Supporters are reminded that match tickets must be purchased either online or in selected Centra and Supervalu stores in advance of the game. Tickets will not be on sale at the venue and tap & go will not be in operation.

Coaching and Games Development

To say the GAA’s Coaching and Games Development team was busy in 2022 would be a decent contender for understatement of the year.

The sheer breadth of development work undertaken was huge and drove a significant increase in the numbers participating in our national games at youth level.

Let’s begin with the veritable hive of club Gaelic games activity that took place.

In the F1 and F2 stages of the player pathway which includes children aged from 4 to 12, there were huge participation numbers in a variety of spheres.

The GAA’s Go Games programme aimed at U7-U11 was delivered across all thirty-two counties in 2022 in Hurling and Gaelic Football to 153,000 children. In total, there were 8,900 blitz opportunities for the 1,593 clubs who participated.

Away from the pitches, an updated Go Games policy was completed and a dedicated Go Games workshop aimed at coaches, mentors and club officers was also developed with roll-out scheduled later this month.

The establishment of club nurseries has increased rapidly in recent years with the number now up to 1,022 in 2022, with 58,000 participants and 8,900 volunteer coaches.

Participation numbers also continue to rise in the Kellogg’s Cúl Camps, with a total of 142,800 young people aged 6-13 taking part in 1,328 camps across 1,266 venues.

Club specific Easter, summer, and Halloween camps delivered by Coaching and Games Development staff in the 32 counties were also hugely busy with 62,098 children taking part in 615 camps.

In the U-12 to U-17 age grade, a total of 22,974 Gaelic football and 11,578 hurling competitive club matches were played across the 32 counties.

The GAA Club Super games programme also continued apace, with a total of 835 clubs delivering recreational games to 13,300 players, male and female, aged 12 to 17.

The Féile na nÓg and Féile Peile na nGael competitions are another vibrant success story, with over 9,000 players from over 380 teams taking part in both Regional and National days in 2022.
