The unique pieces are available through top jewellery retailers nationwide and online at www.gaajewellery.com. It is the first ever official GAA county jewellery range and is perfectly timed for an exciting new Championship season and Fathers’ Day next month. A key inspiration behind the development of the exciting ‘Love Your County’ collection has been to provide GAA members and supporters with a chic and alternative way to demonstrate allegiance to their county. Prices start from €25 – €35 for Sterling Silver charms, €29 – €79 for Stainless Steel and Sterling Silver Pendants, €25 for leather and stainless steel wristwear and €29 for cufflinks.

PHIL TALBOT R.I.P.

Sincere sympathy to the family and friends of Phil Talbot, who died in California. Phil was one of the biggest Tipperary supporters in the Los Angeles region, although away from Gortnahoe and Tipperary for
many years he was always among the first to join the Tipperary Supporters Club every year. One of his fondest moments was the Tipperary SH team’s visit to the “Ireland’s 32” venue of which he spoke often with great pride. Ar dheis Dé go raibh a anam dílis. Thanks to Séamus Kennedy for the message.
