The launch of the Tipperary GAA Board’s ASH (Advanced School of Hurling) programme sponsored by Thurles Fresh Milk will take place in the Dome Semple Stadium at 11:00am on Saturday next. ASH is an enhancement of the development squad programme and squad players in hurling and football and their parents are invited to the event as well as any interested parties.
Among the speakers at the launch include Catherine Logan (National Dairy Council) who will talk about the importance of nutrition for sports people and former Tipperary goalkeeper Brendan Cummins who will speak to the importance of having a proper lifestyle for aspiring young GAA players.
The event will be followed by the official opening of the Lisheen Mine ball wall at Dr Morris Park at 12 noon with the General Manager of Lisheen Mines and Tipperary hurling legend Jimmy Doyle doing the honours. This is a magnificent addition to the training facilities at Dr Morris Park and is being used extensively by the county teams in their preparation for the championships.
