Well done to the footballers who defeated JK Brackens in the county quarter final last weekend by 1-11 to 0-10. It was Brackens who scored the first 2 points of the game but we fought back and a Paul Shanahan goal from the penalty spot shortly before the interval gave us a 3 point lead going into the break. It remained a similar margin throughout the 2nd half and our range of scorers from play (6 different players in total) saw us through. We have been drawn to face reigning champions Loughmore-Castleiney in the semi finals with no venue or time confirmed yet.
Best of luck to the junior hurlers who have a county quarter final clash with Galtee Rovers tomorrow Sat 24th at 3:15pm in Dundrum. Tickets for this game can be bought at https://embed.futureticketing.ie/c/tipperary-gaa/
