From Tipperary GAA Scene
Holycross Ballycahill GAA club will host a senior hurling tournament on Sunday May 8 between Tipperary and Waterford to mark the official opening of the fantastic John Doyle Centre in St Michael’s GAA Grounds. The fabulous centre, which includes four dressing rooms, referee, officials and board meeting rooms, catering suite, upper viewing area, gymnasium and sauna, handball/ hurlball alley, outdoor astro-turf hurling wall and a 1 km outdoor walkway, significantly enhances the clubs already impressive range of facilities and provides a whole new impetus to the emerging enthusiasm of camogie players and ladies football, alongside hurling and gaelic football. The game gets underway at 7pm with the official opening by GAA President Christy Cooney and blessing by Rev Fr Tom Breen taking place at 6.30pm. There is also a special evening for parishioners on FridayMay 6 – the people who helped make the dream become a reality and who supported the many fundraising ventures over the last four years. Congratulations to the Holycross Ballycahill club on this very fine development. It required foresight, hard work and great loyalty from so many people to make this ambitious project a reality. It is a fitting tribute to the great John Doyle and it will add poignancy to the occasion that his passing occurred so recently. His name will never be forgotten wherever hurling people congregate but this centre will be a permanent reminder of the pride his own parish took in his achievements.
