Loughmore face four games in 14 days as Tipperary County Board release championship fixtures

The County Board have released a fixtures plan for the third round of the Tipperary Water-sponsored county senior hurling, senior football, intermediate hurling and intermediate football championships. And, it appears likely that the Loughmore-Castleiney senior panel of players will compete in four championship games in just fourteen days.

On Monday, August 27th Loughmore-Castleiney are scheduled to take on JK Bracken's in the Tipperary Water County Senior Football Championship at Templetuohy (7pm). On Saturday, September 1st Declan Laffan's men take on Portroe in the Tipperary Water County Senior Hurling Championship at Dolla (6.30pm). Loughmore-Castleiney return to action in the Tipperary Water County Senior Football Championship against Kilsheelan-Kilcash on Tuesday, September 4th at Leahy Park, Cashel (6.30pm) and then, just five days later, it is understood that Loughmore-Castleiney will take on Thurles Sarsfields on Sunday, September 9th in the final of the Centenary Agri Mid Tipperary Senior Hurling Championship (the full fixture details for the Mid Tipperary Senior Hurling Championship final remain to be confirmed).

Again, the members of the both the County Board and Mid Tipperary Competitions Control Committee (CCC) should not be held responsible for the situation that Loughmore-Castleiney find themselves in. The CCC are simply fixing games based on a structure voted in by the clubs of Tipperary.
