Tipperary GAA Scene – November 9th 2022

FBD Insurance County Championships

Last weekend saw the conclusion of two more championships along with one county semi final. Clonoulty was the venue for the FBD Insurance county Junior B hurling championship final between Thurles Sarsfields and Solohead. Played in front of a large attendance this was a very well contested game of hurling from start to finish with many fine scores and lots of stylish defending throughout. At the mid way point, it was still all to play for with only two points between the sides, Thurles Sarsfields 2-06, Solohead 0-10. The second half was once again very well contested, but in the end Thurles Sarsfields proved to be that little bit stronger as they claimed the title on a full time score of 3-15 to 1-16.

The under 19 A hurling final also took place on Sunday afternoon in Bansha between Holycross Ballycahill and St Marys. The mid men were many peoples favourites to win this contest, but to their credit St Marys were very determined to upset the odds and indeed they were right in the game at half time trailing by a single point 0-08 to 0-09. Holycross Ballycahill took to the field in a more determined side and they quickly took control of the game outscoring their opponents by 1-12 to 0-08 as they went on to deservedly claim the title on a full time score of 1-21 to 0-16.

Templederry played host to the Junior B footballers of Boherlahan Dualla and Shannon Rovers on Sunday afternoon for their county semi final clash. This was a very low scoring encounter that resulted in “The Sash” qualifying for this year’s final by virtue of a one point win, 0-07 to 1-03.

This coming Saturday, November 12th will see the only fixture of the weekend taking place when Cappawhite Gaels and Upperchurch Drombane will meet in Boherlahan at 1.30pm for their County under 19 B hurling semi final and as always, tickets for this game are now available to purchase via the tickets section of the Tipperary GAA website. A tap and go service will also be in operation at the venue.

Munster Club Championships

Three Tipperary clubs were in action last weekend as they commenced their participation in the various competitions. First into action on Saturday afternoon were the Junior hurlers of Grangemockler Ballyneale who took on defending champions, Cork’s Ballygiblin in FBD Semple Stadium. Defending champions Ballygiblin had the breeze in the first-half, but it was Grangemockler-Ballyneale who got the scoreboard moving with their chief-scorer Darragh Shelley firing over a ’65 in the third minute. Ballygiblin free-taker Joseph O’Sullivan levelled a couple of minutes later. The Tipperary representatives, although beaten in their county final by Upperchurch Drombane, were up for the challenge and put over the next two points from placed balls. The game remained very close throughout, however a second Ballygiblin goal in the closing stages proved to be the difference as they held out to win by 2-10 to 0-11.
