County Table quiz:
This years All County Table quiz will be held in Reidys pub Newtown on Friday February 21st at 9pm sharp. The questions will be given out countywide via Tipp FM.
Last year was a fantastically enjoyable night and we were amongst the best performing clubs in the county with 13 tables.
This year promises to be even better with the presentation of the medals won by our senior Hurlers in last year’s EPIC win over Nenagh Éire Óg in the Dr. Fogarty league final also taking place on the night.
