Tipperary County Board commenced live streaming of the FBD Insurance county championship games last weekend having signed up with 'Streamsport Ireland' as our production partners and 'InPlayer' as our paywall and web site landing partners with the log on link from our own Tipperary GAA web site. We will also work alongside Tipp FM for commentary and analysis.

For the first weekend of streaming 2,500 registered and this includes 1,700 season/pass holders who currently have free access due to the capacity restrictions. An average of 800 to 1000 of those registered logged on to watch each of last weekend's four games with a 15% average watching from overseas the bulk being US, UK and Australia.

We know the summer is alive and kicking when the Kelloggs Cúl Camps get underway up and down the county. This year they are taking place under the umbrella of restrictions associated with the Covid-19 pandemic. With that in mind, a huge word of thanks to Dinny Maher and his team of GDA's and coaches for ensuring what clubs were able to facilitate camps this year could do so in the current health crisis.

Next week will see the following clubs host the Cúl Camps in their facilities - Clonoulty-Rossmore, Ballingarry, Knockshegowna, Clonakenny, Mullinahone, Lattin-Cullen, Solohead and JK Brackens.

With two weeks of Cúl Camps already completed, the first week of camps took place in the following clubs -Knockavilla-Donaskeigh Kickhams, Roscrea, Carrick Swan, Moycarkey-Borris, Holycross-Ballycahill and Shannon Rovers.

During the course of the past week, Cúl Camps were held at the following clubs - Boherlahan-Dualla, Lorrha-Dorrha, Sean Treacy's, Ardfinnan, Killenaule and Kiladangan.

Congratulations to all clubs hosting camps this year and we hope all the juveniles will learn from their cúl camp experiences.
