Our senior footballers bowed out of the championship with defeat to the current title holders Clonmel Commercials last weekend. We put in a fine effort in the first half and were unlucky to be 2 points down at the break. Clonmel showed their class from the restart though and we were unable to keep pace with them as 1-6 without reply in the first 8 minutes effectively ended the game as a contest. An Oisin Treacy goal midway through the half reduced the arrears but it is Commercials who advance to the final 1-20 to 1-5. Despite the result it has been a positive year for the club with quarter final appearances in both senior hurling & football championships in the same season for the first time in our history. Thanks to players, management & backroom teams for their effort throughout the year.
Best of luck to our junior B footballers who face Clonakenny in the mid final this Sunday(31st) at 11:30am in Castleiney. Tickets for this game can be bought at https://embed.futureticketing.ie/c/mid-tipp-gaa/ Adults are €6 with juveniles free if accompanied by an adult. Hopefully the parish turns out in force to see the juniors emulate the u19's in winning the mid crown.
