Divisional Hurling Championships

From Tipperary GAA Scene by Jonathan Cullen, County Board PRO

Last weekend saw another action-packed weekend of games across the county with games across all adult grades in hurling taking place.

The action commenced on Friday evening when Moneygall and Shannon Rovers met in Borrisokane in the North Tipperary Intermediate Hurling championship semi final. This was a very close battle that saw both sides tied at the end of the game and so extra time was needed to decide who would qualify for this year’s final. And it was Moneygall who prevailed on a score of 3-22 to 2-21.

On Saturday the action commenced in Cloughjordan with the meeting of Nenagh Eire Óg and Silvermines in Cloughjordan. This game resulted in the Nenagh men emerging victorious on a full time score of 2-24 to 2-16 and in the process securing their place in this year’s North Senior Hurling Final.

Next up was the meeting of Thurles Sarsfields and Holycross Ballycahill in the Mid Senior Hurling Semi Final. Both teams were hoping to progress to the final, but in the end it was Thurles Sarsfields who had that little bit too much for a Holycross Ballycahill team who have been showing great progression over the last number of years and who could yet have a big say in this years county championship. The final score on Saturday was Thurles Sarsfields 1-22, Holycross Ballycahill 1-11.

There was simultaneous throw in times for a number of games on Saturday evening in both North, South and West Tipperary. In MacDonagh Park Nenagh, Lorrha Dorrha and Portroe went head to head in the North Premier Intermediate semi final that resulted in a comfortable 1-19 to 0-10 win for the men in blue and white.

In Cloughjordan, Borrisokane had 8 points to spare over Kiladangan in the North Intermediate semi final as they progressed to the final on a full-time score of 0-29 to 4-09.

Down South the final of the Intermediate Hurling Championship was taking place between Carrick Davins and Kilsheelan Kilcash in Cahir. This was a very entertaining game and while Kilsheelan Kilcash did emerge victorious on a score of 1-16 to 0-12, The Davins pushed them all the way and never gave up the fight right to the final whistle.

In Golden a very large crowd gathered to watch the 2023 West Tipperary Senior Hurling Final between Clonoulty Rossmore and Cashel King Cormacs and while many had anticipated a close game it was the defending champions who effectively had the victory signed, sealed and delivered after 10 minutes as they lead by 3-04 to 0-03. To their credit the men from the city of the kings kept battling but Clonoulty Rossmore proved to be too strong for them on this occasion as they won in the end by 3-23 to 1-09.

On Sunday the action got underway in Annacarty with the clash of Arravale Rovers and Cappawhite in the West Intermediate Hurling Final. This was a very high scoring and entertaining game of hurling that saw Cappawhite emerge victorious by 4-17 to 2-17.

In The Ragg, Upperchurch Drombane and Loughmore Castleiney met in the second of this year’s Mid Tipperary Senior Hurling Semi Finals. Played in fairly poor weather conditions in front of a large attendance, Upperchurch Drombane proved to be much the better side and while there was only a single point between the sides when referee PJ Nolan sounded the final whistle, Upperchurch Drombane were much the better side with their defence giving a master class all through the game.

Dolla was the venue for the meeting of Borris-Ileigh and Kiladangan on Sunday afternoon for the second North Senior Hurling Semi Finals. Again this was a well contested game that saw Kiladangan pull away from their opponents in the closing stages as they  won by 0-16 to 0-12.


Active Retirement Tour of Semple Stadium

Tipperary County Health & Wellbeing Committee were the driving force behind an active retirement tour of Semple Stadium on 12th July.  50 attendees were treated to an unfiltered and fully guided tour that was skilfully facilitated by Semple Stadium Director David Morgan.  Representatives of many clubs from all 4 divisions were present, as well as attendees from local Mens Sheds, Walking groups and other community organisations.  Liam O’Donnchú, author of Semple Stadium:  Field of Legends expertly provided a rich history of Semple Stadium.  Sergeant John McCormack from Thurles Garda Station gave a fascinating overview of policing plans in place for big match days in the stadium.  David Morgan spoke about the logistical operations required to prepare the Stadium for matches.  Cleaning of seats prior to games, liaising with local and state organisations, ensuring adequate staffing and stewarding, being conscious of sustainability and waste, as well as creating an atmosphere whereby match going patrons have an enjoyable match day experience were all covered.

Attendees were then treated to dressing room access and the opportunity to meet with current Tipperary Senior Hurler Michael Breen who detailed his own personal and team preparations before games.  The music and speakers blared as attendees marched from the dressing rooms onto the hallowed turf as players often experience before big games, albeit without the packed stands!!

Current Tipperary Senior Camogie Manager Denis Kelly, along with senior players Clodagh Quirke and Caoimhe Burke brought the Munster Senior Camogie Cup ahead of their All Ireland Camogie Semi Final v Waterford.  County Chairperson Joe Kennedy thanked the attendees, stadium officials and a particular thanks to Cora Moroney and the Tipperary County Health and Wellbeing Committee for organising the day.  The day ended with a well deserved cupán tae.

Tipperary GAA is delighted to be able to offer an Inclusive Cúl Camp to those children that may not be able to take part in our mainstream Cúl Camp Program. The Camp is a joint venture between Tipperary Coaching and Games Development, under the stewardship of our County Development manager Kevin Halley and Tom Dorney, County Inclusion Officer with Tipperary Sports Partnership.

Tipperary Sports Partnership are delighted to support Tipperary GAA with this inaugural Inclusive Cúl Camp. This is a fantastic opportunity for young Gaels with additional needs, to participate in GAA Cúl camps, like thousands of their peers across the country. By providing “Sport Disability Inclusion” training to the Tipperary Cúl Camp Coaches, Tipperary GAA and Tipperary Sports Partnership are ensuring that not only will the Inclusive Cúl Camp be facilitated by coaches with inclusion training, but each Tipperary Cúl Camp across the county will have a ‘Head Coach’ that can create a fun and welcoming environment for every child.

Both Tipperary GAA and Tipperary Sports Partnership are looking forward to developing, ‘GAA4All’ in Tipperary and would like to acknowledge the fantastic inclusive work already taking place in several clubs.

The Camp will run on August 16th and 17th in Dr Morris Park Thurles and is aimed at children from 5 to 12 years of age. Please use the booking link attached for bookings and further details.
