The Tipperary Supporters Club will launch the 2008 Adult Membership campaign on Wednesday, January 16th at 8:30pm at the Horse & Jockey Hotel. Adult Membership in 2008 will cost €30 (unchanged since 2005). Each Adult Membership Card will be accompanied by a Tipperary Car Sticker and a very smart specially-designed Tipperary key-ring. Adult Members will be entered in a Ticket Draw for each of Tipperary’s Munster and All-Ireland championship games. They will also be entered in a Draw for an All-Ireland Weekend stay at the new Louis Fitzgerald Hotel, Dublin (match tickets included).
Liam Sheedy, manager of the Tipperary Senior Hurling team, will attend the launch while Bank Of Ireland will have a representative present to facilitate those wishing to sign up for the popular Tipperary Credit Card. While all current sellers of Memberships are invited, invitations are also being extended to potential new sellers. The Committee are actively seeking more people interested in helping the Tipperary hurling effort – particularly people living / working in Tipperary itself. They want to extend the membership base throughout the county and anybody who would like to sell Supporters Club membership is welcome to attend on the night. The function will commence at 8:30pm. Tea and sandwiches will be served with an estimated finish time of 10:00pm. For more information, please contact Supporters Club Secretary, Joe Tuohy on 087-817 0464 or by email at
