It was also decided that the final of the Gleeson Quarries Mid Tipperary Senior Football Championship will also take place in Holycross on October 5th as part of a very attractive double bill.

The throw in time for the Senior Football Final will be 1 30pm. This is the first time that both senior finals will be played together and with admission prices set at €10 for adults and €5 for students and senior citizens it is hoped that patrons will avail of of the opportunity to attend both games. In another first, the senior football final will be refereed by Tom McGrath (Loughmore-Castleiney) who will be refereeing his first senior football final.
