Thurles - get your colours up to support the Tipperary teams

Shops, businesses, homes and property owners are this week being urged to get their blue and gold colours out to support the Tipperary minor and senior hurling, and senior football teams in the All-Ireland series.

With the hurlers having reached the All-Ireland Finals on September 4th, there will be much focus on Thurles town, the birthplace of the GAA and this represents a great chance for the town to be best dressed in the county.

The teams also train in Thurles in Dr Morris Park and there will be many visitors to the area hoping to catch a glimpse of the players and the management teams in advance of the big games.

So, why not ensure that you have your flags, bunting, or indeed anything blue and gold draped throughout your property to bring plenty of colour to the streets of Thurles.

Win, lose or draw, the teams will be returned to The Cathedral Town on Monday evening September 5th and it would be magnificent to have the streets bedecked in support of our local heroes.

And, with Michael Cahill, the Maher brothers Padraic and Ronan, Stephen Cahill and Aidan McCormack of the senior team, all hailing from the town, not to mention selector Conor Stakelum, proprietor of Stakelums Office Supplies, and his son Conor junior who is on the minor team which also has former Sarsfields player Liam Cahill as Manager, and Durlas Og's Sean Corbett as selector, it would only be fitting and right that Thurles responds accordingly. So, get those colours up Thurles.
