Tipperary GAA Scene – February 8th 2023

Allianz Football League

Our senior footballers made the long trip to Cavan last Sunday where they took on the home side in Kingspan Breffni Park. This game was always going to be a tough encounter and given the fact that Tipperary were without key forward Conor Sweeney through injury, the task was made all the more difficult. Tipperary did get off to a good start and were ahead by 1-03 to 0-01 after 10 mins, however the home side soon got to grips with the game and took control of the game leading by 1-10 to 1-04 at the break. Things did not get any better for Tipperary in the second half as Cavan went on to claim the points on a full time score of 1-19 to 1-07.

Tipperary will now prepare for the visit of Antrim to FBD Semple Stadium on Saturday February 18th where a win for David Power’s side will be crucial.


The Dillon Quirke Foundation Senior Hurling Challenge

On Sunday February 19th at 2pm in FBD Semple Stadium, Tipperary and Kilkenny will play a senior hurling challenge in aid of the Dillon Quirke Foundation. The foundation was set up in honour of Dillon who collapsed during a hurling match and died of SADS on the 5th of August 2022 in FBD Semple Stadium Thurles.

Sudden adult death syndrome (SADS) takes 100 young lives in Ireland every year. With your help, our aim is to raise awareness and save lives by screening every GAA player both male and female from the age of 12 upwards.

Tickets for the game are now available on both the Dillon Quirke Foundation and the Tipperary GAA websites where there is also the option of purchasing a non-attendance ticket which will give access to the full match day programme. In addition, if you cannot attend the game but would like to watch it, the game is being streamed live on the day and again you can purchase the stream via both websites.
