The club extends its deepest sympathies to the Cooney family for the loss of Ryan who passed away tragically in the U.S. May he rest in peace.
The final piece of fixture news was revealed at the north board meeting last week when we were drawn against our near neighbours Portroe in the first game of the still Knockout North championship. Portroe, as we all remember put an end to our senior hurling year in 2015 when they beat us in the North championship thus completing a miserable run of losses.
Meanwhile to our senior hurlers completed the Mayhem obstacle course in Cahir at the weekend to set the tone for the coming year. There are plenty of photo’s of the lads efforts shared to club facebook account for anyone interested. We would also like to say well done to Donagh Maher who starred in Tipperary’s highly impressive defeat of Dublin in Saturday evenings National Hurling League opener in Croke Park.
If anyone wishes to be included on a text distribution list for match notifications & other club matters please contact Club secretary Gemma Flynn on the club phone (087) 235 9336.

The little all star activities finished up on Saturday last with a presentation of certificate to the 58 boys and girls from the parish who took part.
