Breithlá Shona Jimmy
Wednesday is going to be a very special day for one of the club’s greatest stalwarts, Jimmy Morris, as he celebrates his 90th birthday. Jimmy has worked tirelessly for the club over the decades and his enthusiasm for the Blues has never wavered as he wears his heart on his sleeve at every match the club plays, be it hurling, football or camogie. We hope Jimmy has a magical day and we look forward to celebrating many more birthdays with him in the future.
Our senior hurlers completed the round robin stage of the FBD Insurance county championship on Sunday last defeating Burgess 2-23 to 2-17 with the Nenagh goals coming from Philip Hickey and Jake Morris. The win ensures our progression to the quarter-final of the county championship.
Legends Match in aid of Alzheimers Society of Ireland
The years were certainly rolled back in MacDonagh Park on Saturday last as the Tipperary legends dusted the cobwebs off their boots, hurleys and helmets and made a welcome return to action as they took on their Limerick counterparts in a charity game in aid of the Alzheimers Society of Ireland. A large crowd gathered as the Premier ran out 4-23 to 4-16 winners. Our thanks go to all the volunteers, players and match officials who made the day such a huge success and we wish the Alzheimers Society of Ireland the very best of luck in the future.
Walking Group Presentation
The club’s walking group, in conjunction with the Healthy Club Project, recently climbed Croagh Patrick to raise money for Milford Care Centre and amassed an amazing €7,000 in the process thanks to the generosity of so many. You are all invited to the complex this Friday, September 13th, at 8pm where the proceeds will be presented and refreshments provided.
Work Begins on New Grounds
Work began on our new grounds in Streame during the week and everyone in the club are really excited about the ten-acre development and which we will have access to through Grey’s Lane at the scoreboard end of the inside pitch in MacDonagh Park. With our juvenile and camogie sections growing exponentially in recent years the demands on our two playing fields has grown to an unsustainable level and the new grounds are a much needed acquisition to meet the modern-day demands of the club. This work will lead to a development of one playing pitch and leave enough room for other developments which have yet to be decided upon.
