BRIDGESTONE AWARD "Best in Ireland 2011, 2012 and 2013.
MARCH 10TH, 2021 | BY JONATHAN CULLEN
The Late Tom McLoughney
Tom made his League debut with Tipperary in 1959 and went on to win All-Ireland senior medals in 1961 and 1962. In addition, he won 3 Munster medals, 2 National League and 2 Oireachtas Medals. In what was a golden period for the Premier County, Tom wore the number 14 jersey in a lethal Tipperary forward line. On the club front Tom was part of the MacDonaghs teams that won the North finals in 1959 and 1965. A shrewd judge of a hurler, he was a senior selector with Tipperary in 1980 and filled the same role with Kilruane MacDonaghs senior team that won a hattrick of North and County titles (1977-1979). As the first MacDonaghs player to win an All-Ireland senior hurling medal, he was an iconic figure in Cloughjordan parish. Tom was selected at full-forward on the North Centenary hurling team (1951-2001) and he was honoured with a Laochra Gael Award in 2012. At the time of his death, Tom was his clubs President. Tipperary GAA County Board extends sympathy to Tom’s wife Marie, daughters Eleanor & Mary, son Jack and extended family.
