What a week for our town. Sam Bennett becomes a World Champion winning the Green jersey at the Tour de France and Swan’s Lee Grace took on the Rossoneri, AC Milan, and the self-proclaimed GOAT (Greatest Of All Time), Zlatan Ibrahimović in a Europa League qualifier with Shamrock Rovers.

Our Seniors take on the real GOAT’s Mullinahone next weekend in the South Semi-Final. The game throws in on Sunday at 2pm in Clonmel Sportsfield. Best of luck.

Our Juniors take on Mullinahone in their South Semi-Final a day earlier, on Saturday, also in Clonmel Sportsfield, with the game throwing in at 4pm. Best of luck.
