Regarding next weeks A.G.M, I would like all clubs to consider the following:
• Should Tipperary enter men & ladies teams for this event?
• If so, would it be preferable for the board to organise official transport for the teams to Derry on the day of event or stay overnight near Derry before the day of competition?
The board will make its decision regarding teams on A.G.M night as outlined in the agenda.
