Our club volunteers once again went above and beyond the call of duty this week to help the vulnerable in our community. We expressly wish to thank co-ordinators Bartley and Marion Ryan for all their work and our army of volunteers who have been shopping for groceries and collecting medicines for those who can’t venture out.
Our volunteers will continue to provide these services for as long as is required and if you need any assistance please contact club coordinator Bartley Ryan on 086 735 8359.

Tipperary GAA County Board Draw
The Tipperary GAA Clubs Draw which was due to begin this month has been rescheduled to Friday September 18th. We are confident there will be a full resumption of games activity well in advance of this date to allow clubs promote the draw. Lár na Pairce office personnel have already prepared the New Draw material and this is ready for collection for any individual clubs who wish to make an immediate start. The final receipts for the 2019/20 Draw will not be posted out until August 1st which is just about six weeks before the first draw. Enclosed with the receipt will be details of an easy system for paying the new draw subscription on-line if preferred and thus avoiding promoters calling to members houses during the current pandemic.
Rarely has MacDonagh Park looked so well and not one single ball is being hit in anger. Even the goalmouths are coated in a lovely covering of grass, a sight not seen in many a GAA field for decades. The club wishes to thank Jim Kennedy, Shane Connolly, Cian Connolly, Mel Gleeson and John Tooher for kindly volunteering their time to cut the grass and maintain the grounds during these strange times.
Following recent Garda advice in line with the latest GAA statement and guidelines, we wish to remind our players, members and general public that our fields and facilities remain closed with no exceptions. We ask all to please respect the GAA and HSE protocols and keep all members of our community safe from Covid-19.
