Noel McGrath honoured for cancer work as Tipp Person of the Year

Noel McGrath of Tipperary hurling fame has been selected as the Tipperary Person of the Year for 2015 by the Tipperary Association Dublin.

In spring 2015, the Tipperary and national hurling world was shocked to hear the news that Noel McGrath had been diagnosed with cancer.

Speaking at the announcement of the award, Liam Myles, President of the Tipperary Association Dublin, stated that the dignified way in which he handled his adversity, the courageous way he publicly acknowledged his illness and more so the way he highlighted testicular cancer and the need for males – young and old – to be monitored and checked sets him apart as a Tipperary person in 2015.
