The mid junior A hurling title returned to the parish after a 26 year wait as we defeated Thurles Sarsfields in Littleton last Sunday. A tame first half saw us take a 1 point lead into the break. It was a goal from Conor Fahey midway through the 2nd half that finally got us some breathing room and we maintained a multiscore lead for the remainder. A 2nd goal from Conor in injury time secured a 6 point win 2-15 to 0-15. A tremendous effort from all lines of the field saw us through and now sets up a county quarter final clash with Galtee Rovers on Sat 24th at 3:15pm in Dundrum
Best of luck to our junior footballers who face Moyne-Templetouhy in the mid semi final this evening(Friday) at 8pm in Templetouhy. Tickets for this game are available at https://embed.futureticketing.ie/c/mid-tipp-gaa/
