Team Homecoming and Banquet Reports

The Tipperary Supporters Club would like to thank the players, management and back up team for their excellent work throughout 2009.   The Season included the Allianz NHL Final which went to extra time, the retention of the Munster SH title and a narrow defeat in the All-Ireland Final .  We look forward with great hope to 2010 and beyond.  

Well done to the Tipperary Senior Hurling team and management on their great performance against Kilkenny in last Sunday’s All Ireland Senior Hurling Championship final in Croke Park. While they just came up short in their quest to bring the Liam McCarthy Cup back to Tipperary, all Tipperary people were very proud and heartened by their great display in what all commentators have described as a truly great final. The team received a great reception at the banquet for them hosted by the Tipperary Association Dublin in the Burlington Hotel in Dublin on Sunday night. We are grateful to the Tipperary Association for their customary welcome and hospitality and to all those who attended the banquet. On Monday evening the team returned to Thurles by train and received a magnificent welcome from several thousand Tipperary supporters at Semple Stadium. We would like to thank all the players, Liam Sheedy, Eamon O’Shea and Michael Ryan and their backroom team for all their hard work and dedication over the last 9 months. Theirs is a massive commitment and we are also grateful to their families for supporting them so well and enabling them to make the time to dedicate to Tipperary. Well done to them all.
