Tipperary Club Focus – Moyne-Templetuohy 27/08/2021

Brief History of Club  

Early Days-The Moyne Club were the first to be formed in 1885 following the founding of the GAA in 1884.  Their first documented game was against Tullaroan in 1887.  Moyne’s club colours were green and white.  On the same day the first mention of a team from Templetuohy played Gortnahoe, but this was abandoned in the second half when the crowd invaded the playing field!  Templetuohy did not have its own club until 1897 which was the same year that Moyne played its first championship match.  The first hurler from the parish to play on a Tipperary selection was Tom Carroll of Moyneard. 

The first 20 years- In 1905 Templetuohy played their first hurling match under the Tipperary County Board.  In 1908 Templetuohy Sportsground attracted a record crowd of 3,000 spectators who assembled to watch a championship match between Thurles and Two-mile-borris!  Templetuohy had its first major success at senior level in 1911 when they defeated Thurles in the Tipperary Senior Football final on a score line of 3-0 to 2-1.  There were however a variety of teams and combinations affiliated within the parish.  Kilclooney Shamrocks, Moyne Shamrocks, Templetuohy-Castleiney, Lisheen and Castleiney hurling club, Moyne and Templetuohy United to name but a few.

Moyne’s first championship success came in no uncertain terms from the steady development and success of the Kilclooney Shamrocks where they defeated Ileigh in the final of the Intermediate hurling competition in 1918.
