THURLES SARSFIELDS IN MUNSTER CLUB HURLING FINAL
From Tipperary GAA Scene
Good luck to Thurles Sarsfields who will play De La Salle of Waterford in the AIB Munster Club Hurling Championship final in Páirc Ui Chaoimh on Sunday next at 2pm. John Sexton of Cork will be the referee. De la Salle will be seeking their second title having been champions for the first time in 2008. Thurles Sarsfields are seeking their first ever Munster club title and are playing in their first ever Munster club final. The last Tipperary club to win the title was Loughmore Castleiney in 2007.

Munster Club Championships

Hard luck to Aherlow on their very unlucky defeat to Dr. Crokes of Killarney in the AIB Munster Club Football semi-final after extra time at Leahy Park, Cashel on Sunday last. Aherlow looked to have the game won as they led by a single point as the game entered its third minute of injury time. However, Dr. Crokes snatched a draw with the last kick of the game and went on to win in extra time by 8 points on a scoreline of 2-11 to 0-9.

Hard luck to Borrisokane whose season came to an end in Limerick last Sunday when Ballymartle of Cork defeated them in the Munster Intermediate Hurling final on a scoreline of 2-12 to 0-8. Ballymartle had a commanding 13 point lead at half time which was the foundation for their victory. While Borrisokane fought back well in the second half, they had too high a mountain to climb.

Congratulations to St. Patrick’s on securing a place in the Munster Junior Hurling final by defeating Ballydurn of Waterford in the semi-final on Sunday last after extra time at Walsh Park. They will now play Meelin of Cork in the final on December 12.

BLOODY SUNDAY 90TH ANNIVERSARY COMMEMORATION
From www.tipperary.gaa.ie
A large crowd attended the commemoration of the 90th anniversary of the death of Tipperary footballer, Michael Hogan at Grangemockler last Sunday. Mick Egan of Clonmel Commercials, former Chairman of the South Tipperary Board, delivered a fine oration in which he recounted in detail the events of Bloody Sunday which saw Michael Hogan and 13 others shot dead by British forces in Croke Park on Sunday November 21 1920 during the height of the War of Independence. He remembered all those who played for Tipperary that fateful and historic day including his late uncle, Jim Egan. He recalled that many of those same players represented Tipperary when they won the 1920 All Ireland senior football title although the final was not played until 1922. This was the county’s last senior football title. He also referred to the strength of the GAA and its ability to overcome all obstacles put in its way during its history including attacks such as Bloody Sunday. Mick also delivered a recitation, Mick Hogan – the Story of Bloody Sunday and Ned Hanrahan of Grangemockler sang the Ballad of Mick Hogan. Local parish priest, Fr. Gear, blessed the grave of Michael Hogan at which a wreath was laid jointly by Barry O’Brien, Chairman of Tipperary County Board, Dick Egan, Chairman of the South Board and Noel Morris, Chairman of the Football Board. Relatives of Michael Hogan and others who played that day were in attendance. Ger Ryan, PRO of Tipperary County Board was MC for the commemoration. Thanks are due to the local club, Grangemockler Ballyneale, and to County Vice Chairman, Sean Nugent for organising the commemoration.
