Team News: New Text Service for Members

For the Munster SH Championship match v Cork on 30 May we are going to do a trial of a new service for current year adult members of the Tipperary Supporters Club. We plan to send the team selection via a text message as quickly as possible after the announcement to those current year adult members for whom we have on our records a mobile phone number. Please note that our service provider is only in a position to make this service available for numbers within the Republic of Ireland. This service will be in addition to the usual email message which is sent to our complete email list but the text message will only go to adult members for whom we have recorded a membership for 2010. There will be no charge to members for the service and we will consider whether to extend it to future SH Championship matches based on the comments and feedback from members. If you have joined for this year and wish to provide us with a mobile phone number for the first time or a change of mobile number please do so by emailing  with full details. If you are a 2010 member who has given us your mobile numbers and you do not wish to receive such a text message please send us an email to that effect. 

Between now and the team announcement we will be sending a tester message to make sure that our records are correct. We will give details of the tester message in the regular emails so that members can contact us with corrections etc. 

The text for the Cork game will only be available to members who have renewed their membership for 2010 by 15th May 2010.  2010 members who have renewed by that date will also be entered in to the draw for five pairs of stand tickets for that match.  So if you have not yet taken out membership for 2010 please do so as soon as possible.


Adult Membership in 2010 costs €30 (unchanged since 2005). Each Adult Membership Card will be accompanied by a Tipperary Car/Window Sticker and a gift of a specially-designed Irish-made Tipperary Supporters pen. This special pen includes a unique pull out insert giving details of dates, times and venues for more than thirty fixtures in 2010 including all of Tipperary’s games in the Senior, Under 21, Minor and Intermediate Hurling Championships and National Hurling League. Adult Members will be entered in Ticket Draws for five pairs of stand tickets before each of Tipperary’s Munster and All-Ireland championship games. They will also be entered in a Draw for an All-Ireland Hurling Weekend stay at the Four Star Louis Fitzgerald Hotel, Dublin (match tickets included). Also members can access a discount scheme and will receive regular updates by email on team news, match reports and events. To obtain your 25% members’ discount at the Louis Fitzgerald Hotel just follow the link on  .

The Committee are actively seeking more people interested in helping the Tipperary hurling effort – particularly people living / working in Tipperary itself. We want to extend the adult membership base further throughout the county and anybody who would like to take some Supporters Club memberships to join up their friends is welcome to contact Supporters Club PRO and Membership Officer, John Coman on 087-9087105 or by email at  . Supporters can join on line on  by credit card or debit card . On the website details are also available of the direct debit facility; as the Club is run on a completely voluntary basis it would be a great help of members could join by direct debit. If joining by post please send a cheque or postal order payable to Tipperary Supporters Club to John Coman, 52 Hazelbrook Road, Terenure, Dublin 6W.

Any members who have joined by direct debit do not need to renew on line.

Junior Membership is still free and Junior Members do not have to rejoin as their membership is carried forward from year to year.
