Army personnel from McCan Barracks Templemore attended the official opening of the Garda sports field circa 1969. To mark the occasion a Garda selection played the Tipperary u/21 football team which included Templemore’s Jack Walsh who turned in a “star performance” and was awarded Man of the Match. The Tipp boys won!
