Dear Tipperary Supporter

The Seamus O Riain Cup senior hurling final between Carrick Davins and Thurles Sarsfields will take place next Sunday evening, August 18 at Clonmel Sportsfield at 6.30pm. Historically, these sides had a famous double encounter in the draw and replay of the 1965 county senior hurling final. The scoreline in the first game at Clonmel was Sarsfields 2-7 Davins 3-4 but Sarsfields won the replay at Cashel by 3-11 to 2-7. Sarsfields won their second five in a row in 11 years that day but Davins went on to win the 1966 and 67 county titles. Every county final between 1955 and 1970 featured at least one of the two clubs. There is also an interesting connection with Seamus O Riain because he wrote the definitive biography of Maurice Davin, founder of the GAA from Carrick-on-Suir and after whom the Davins club is named. Admission will be only €5 with juveniles free. Extra time will be played in the event of a draw. There will be a man of the match award sponsored by Bobby Fitzgerald of Fitzgerald Fleming Accountants in Carrick-on-Suir. Bobby is a staunch support of the GAA clubs in the town and of course chaired the committee responsible for the recent erection of a statue in honour of Maurice Davin at Davin Park. The GAA Centre in Clonmel will have music in the bar after the game and all are welcome.


Seven of the eight teams in round 4 of the Clean Ireland Recycling senior hurling championship are now known following the West and Mid finals last weekend and the Borris-Ileigh victory over Burgess. Congratulations to Eire Og Annacarty and Drom and Inch on their wins in the West and Mid finals respectively. In the final round 3 game, Templederry Kenyons will play Toomevara in MacDonagh Park Nenagh on Saturday evening next, August 17 at 7pm with extra time to be played in the event of a draw. The winners will join Carrick Swan, Silvermines, Clonoulty Rossmore, Loughmore Castleiney (all divisional final losers), Nenagh Eire Og, Roscrea and Borris-Ileigh in Round 4, the draw for which will be made next weekend.


The Clean Ireland Recycling senior hurling relegation final will be played at New Inn on Sunday evening next August 18 at 6.30 pm in New Inn. There will be no extra time in the event of a draw. The losing team will be relegated to Intermediate grade for next year.


On Friday, August 23, at the Abbey Court Hotel in Nenagh, a ‘Hurling night with the stars’ will take place at 8pm.

DJ Carey (Kilkenny), Anthony Daly (Clare & current Dublin manager), Nicky English (Tipperary), John Mullane (Waterford) and Conor Hayes (Galway) will take part in a Q & A session with members of the public, faciliated by Tipperary man Damian Lawlor from the Sunday Independent.

It’s been a remarkable hurling summer by any stretch of the imagination and the expert views of our special guests will be worth listening to as we look ahead to the conclusion of the All-Ireland hurling championship.

Entry to the event is €10, payable at the door, and at half-time, a raffle will take place for some great prizes.

This fundraising event is raising money for the ‘Fix Crumlin’ campaign at the Children’s Medical and Research Foundation at Our Lady’s Children’s Hospital, Crumlin.

Senior Hurling
Close call for Islanders
Long Island Gaels 3-19 Tipperary 4-14

In an excellent hurling semifinal Long Island did just enough to qualify for the final next week where they will take on Galway. Two points behind at the break they came out on top after a brilliant second half where both sides had brilliant goals as they went toe to toe. The sides opened at 2 apiece and it was level pegging for the next fifteen minutes before Tipperary broke ahead with three frees from Buggy O’Meara to put two between the sides at the short whistle, 0-09 to 0-07. The goals started to flow in the second half and the lead changed hands on a number of occasions.

aul Loughnane had a brilliant score when he doubled on a dropping pass from O’Meara while Shane Minton had 1-01 to open a slight lead for the winners. Back to back goals for Tipperary with less than seven minutes left changed the environment but Long Island reacted in the best way possible. Dean Higgins rattled the net with a pile driver to again put the side in front and a point from Alan Stenson extended the margin. The final whistle arrived just in time with both sides battling to the end.
