The stars of country music are set to descend on Templemore next week as part of a major fundraiser for the local ladies GAA club.
Trudi Lalor, along with special guests John McNicholl, Mick Flavin and Paddy O’Brien, take to the stage at Our Lady’s Secondary School on Tuesday April 24 to raise much needed funds for training facilities for Templemore Ladies Football club.
The club recently secured a ground sharing arrangement with Our Lady's for use of their pitch however there are currently no toilet facilities available for the team and existing changing areas require significant upgrades.
The club is the largest ladies football club in Tipperary, catering to girls/ ladies from six years of age to senior level and continues to grow and attracts members from Templemore/ Clonmore/ Killea, Loughmore/ Castleiney Clonakenny, Drom & Inch and Borrisoleigh. Teams from the club have had great success in recent times, having progressed from Junior B to Senior status in five years.

However Templemore remained focused on the prize and put in an outstanding performance to come away victors on a scoreline of 3-6 to 1-3.
The club have won county titles in all age groups including U16, Minor and Intermediate titles in 2016 and an U14 county title in 2017. Already in 2018 we are proud to say that we qualified to represent Tipperary in the All Ireland Feile to be held in June. We have been represented at county level each year and in 2017 we were proud of Maria Curley and Elaine Fitzpatrick who achieved All Ireland glory with Tipperary Intermediates. Maria was also awarded an All Star for her performance with UL in the O'Connor Cup Final.

A great measure of the clubs success is the increasing membership, currently at 150. The hard working committee, dedicated mentors, supportive parents and talented group of players all combine to bring about the clubs success.
