Juvenile Scene

What a week it has been for our u15 footballers. On Saturday, we played 4 games. In the early morning, we travelled to Ballylooby where we took on North Tipperary’s Kilruane MacDonaghs, West Tipperary’s  Clonoulty/Rossmore, and South Tipperary’s Ballyporeen in the County Tipperary Division 3 Peil Na nÓg group stage. A win against Clonoulty, a draw with Kilruane, and a loss to Ballyporeen, saw us qualify for the County Semi-Final where we had to travel to Duneske School Sports Complex in Cahir, to take on Cahir in a thrilling encounter that went to extra-time.

In extra-time, the boys dug deep, and we got over the line with two points to spare. 3-06 to 1-10. The win qualified us for the County Final, which took place the following morning in Templemore against Ballyporeen.

On Sunday, we travelled to Templemore to take on the team that had already beaten us 24 hours previous. A magnificent first half performance set us on our way to becoming the 2024 County Tipperary Division 3 Peil Na nÓg Champions.

Congratulations to the boys and their management team on a fantastic win. It qualifies us for the John West Féile Peile na nÓg Regional Finals which will take place at the end of June.

On Tuesday night, our u13 footballers will play their shield semi-final. At time of writing, the opposition is unknown. Check out the Tipp GAA site for the official fixture closer to Tuesday.
