Nenagh Guardian

This week’s edition of the Nenagh Guardian features a spectacular front page photo of Nenagh Éire Óg hurler Shane Hennessy taking the plunge at Youghalarra Pier on Christmas Day - record numbers attended the 21st renewal of the Christmas Day Swim. A Peter Gleeson story also reports on the front page that Nenagh traders enjoyed a good Christmas while an off-lead suggests that Tipperary house prices fell by five per cent in the final quarter of 2012.

Peter Gleeson’s a-to-z review of the year on page six makes for interesting reading as does the two-page quotes of the year feature on 14-15.

For those of a GAA persuasion page nineteen of the sports supplement houses a comprehensive Tipperary GAA masters fixtures list. There is also an excellent report and pictures from Nenagh Ormond’s stunning win over Dolphin in the recent Munster Senior Plate final. Indeed, it is fitting to note that Fijian native and Nenagh Ormond star Lemeki Viapulu has earned the Nenagh Guardian Player of the Week award.

This week’s sports section also features photos from Sunday evening’s Tipperary GAA medal presentation ceremony and from the Lorrha sevens tournament which took place on St Stephen’s Day.

In terms of reports the recent junior A football final, junior C hurling final and the conculding stages of the under-21A and B county hurling championships also feature.

Tipperary Star

On the front page of this week’s Tipperary Star an off-lead features local business people like Robert Gill and Noreen O’Sullivan who have heralded the recent festive period as being good for the business people of the town while on the Nenagh page Ronan Dodd reveals that twenty-two patients spent New Year’s Eve on trolleys at the Mid-West Regional Hospital in Limerick. Meanwhile Councillor Tom Moylan has called on his fellow members of Nenagh Town Council to make every effort to dissuade Minister Phil Hogan from bringing his plans to reform local government to fruition.

Thurles Sarsfields and Upperchurch-Drombane’s wins in the under-21A and B county hurling finals feature prominently in the sports section this week.
