We suffered a narrow 2 point defeat to Thurles Sarsfields in the mid final last Sunday. In a highly competitive game, in wet conditions, we got off to a great start scoring the first 4 points of the match. Sarsfields finally found their feet in the game and by half time we led by 2 points. Sarsfields raised the first 3 flags of the second half but from there on the teams traded points and entering injury time the sides were level. It was Sarsfields who got the remaining 2 scores to win 0-18 to 0-16. Attention now turns to the county championship. We begin this Sunday against Holycross-Ballycahill in Littleton at 1pm. Tickets can be bought in advance at https://embed.futureticketing.ie/c/tipperary-gaa/ or via contactless payment on the gate. The game can also be purchased for streaming via www.clubber.ie.
