We’ve lots of good news regarding Swans wearing blue and gold this week. On Thursday, Jamie Holloway became the first Swan man to play for Tipperary at Pairc na nEalaí as the Tipp u20 footballers beat Waterford in a challenge game in preparation for their upcoming Munster Championship.  The Minor hurling panel was distributed to clubs and the media, with Owen Harrigan on the panel. On top of that, Claire Connolly was included in the u14 Tipperary camogie panel, and we had three boys making the South Tipperary u14 hurling panel. Well done to Stefan Tobin, Rian Power and Ronan Redmond, and to Jamie, Owen, and Claire.  It’s always great to see our players donning the blue & gold jersey.

It was a tough week on the playing pitches this week, with all but one result going against us.

Our Seniors continue their championship preparations on Sunday, with a 3-point loss to Mullinahone in the County Senior Hurling League. Our Seniors play Holycross Ballycahill at Pairc na nEalaí on Sunday next at 12 noon.
