Allianz Hurling & Football Leagues
Our senior hurlers welcomed Galway to Thurles last Saturday for Round 3 of the Allianz hurling league. In what was a very entertaining game, Tipperary came away with full points on a score line of 2-19 to 0-20. First half goals from Jason Forde and Noel McGrath played a major role in what was a good all round performance and while the team is still a work in progress the win will give all concerned a lift following the news that Patrick “Bonner” Maher will be out of action for some time having sustained an Achilles Tendon injury in training.
We wish Patrick the very best in his recovery and look forward to seeing him on the playing fields in the not too distant future. Tipperary now have a break until Sunday June 6th when they will travel to Mullingar to play Westmeath in round 4.
Our footballers were also in action on Saturday last as they played host to Wicklow in Semple Stadium. Having lost their round 1 games, in essence this was a must win game for both sides. It was Wicklow who appeared to settle in to the game a little quicker, but a good third quarter set Tipperary on the way to a 3 point winning margin on a full time score of 2-12 to 1-12.
The footballers will now head to O’Connor Park Tullamore next Saturday to play Offaly. David Power will be hoping for a victory that could see his charges qualify for the league semi final. We wish the lads the very best of luck. The game can be seen live on the GAAGO platform, while Tipp FM will also broadcast the game from 2.50pm. Tipperary GAA will have score updates on our twitter feed through out the game.
