For the purposes of our recent fund-raiser, the first goal in the 2012 All-Ireland Hurling Final was scored by Joe Canning of Galway at 9mins and 5secs. The winning ticket was sold by Brendan Carey to Jenny Kennedy from Templemore. Well done Jenny and a big thank you to all who supported the fundraiser.

Congratulations to the Tipperary minor panel and management on their great victory over Dublin on Sunday last. It was a much needed lift for the County. Congratulations also to Eamon O’ Shéa on his appointment as the new Tipperary senior manager. Eamon is one of the great intellectuals of the game and we look forward to seeing him devise a strategy over the coming year to help bring the McCarthy cup back home to the premier county.
