Split The Pot Coming to Borrisoleigh
Tipperary PPN invite all members to attend our next full member event Participation, Representation and Good Governance (Plenary) on Thursday 4th April in Loughmore community parish hall from 5:30pm to 9pm.
Given the timing of local elections, the theme of our next plenary is participation, representation and governance for your community.
The PPN envisages that this plenary will be an opportunity for their members to gain a better understanding of what the role of the strategic policy committees (SPCs) are:
The polices SPCs have implemented in the past
How PPN members can contribute effectively on policy formation using the mechanism of the SPC.
Having PPN representation on an SPC enables the concerns and experiences of the community to be incorporated at an early stage of policy development, leading to more positive outcomes.
There will also be a presentation on governance for community groups.
Please inform us if you have any special requirements by contacting us on 0504 61014 or [email protected]
A book on the life of Sean Hogan, of Soloheadbeg and Knocklong fame, will be launched in the Excel in Tipperary Town on 11th April next, at 8.00 pm. This book charts the life of the young volunteer, his exploits during the War of Independence and Civil War and also tells about his life, post-conflict.
While recognising the undoubted heroism and courage, this work gives equal prominence to the loss and sacrifice, along with the wider impact on the family. This story can be equally applied to many of the combatants of that troublesome time.
The author, local man, John Connors, along with researching the various records and archives, was given free access to the Hogan family papers and has also conducted interviews with many people who had known him during his years in Athboy, Celbridge and Dublin.
The book, containing material not seen previously in the public domain and generously illustrated with some rare photographs, will be launched by, another Seán Hogan, historian and author of the widely acclaimed, “Black and Tans in North Tipperary”.

We will take on County Champions Clonoulty Rossmore this Sunday the 7th of April in Holycross at 2pm.

North Junior ‘A’ Hulring League:
Well done to our Junior ‘A’s who had a convincing victory over neighbors Templederry Kenyons in Round 2 of the North Junior ‘A’ Hurling in the Park last Saturday afternoon.
We started off the game well taking the lead inside the first 40 seconds with a finely struck Micheal Carey getting us on the board. Templederry responded in emphatic fashion with full forward Dylan Carey hitting 1-01 inside a minute to give the Kenyon men a three point lead after five minutes. That we be as good as it for them though as we were soon level thanks to a scores from midfield pairing Liam Ryan and Nicky Cooney, the latter slotting over four points from on the day the in a fine performance. We were then gifted a fortuitous goal after Micheal Carey’s long ball into the square caused a mix up in the Templderry full back line allowing the ball to go straight into the net, he then followed that up with two free’s to put us in a commanding 1-06 to 1-01 half way through the half.
Further points from Matthew Stapleton, Ryan Murphy and Carey again increased our stranglehold on the game. In what was our most impressive spell in the game we managed to out score our opponents 0-09 to 0-01. This period of dominance included some excellent points from David O’Connor, Ryan Murphy and fantastic Liam Ryan effort from the far sideline. Two more Carey frees rounded off an great first half display as we went in with 13 point lead at the break, 1-15 to 1-02.
As expected Templederry were the quickest out of the traps in the second half, getting the first two scores to reduce the back to 11, but a second Micheal Carey goal after a fine run from Matthew Stapleton through heart of the opposition defence effectively ended the game as a contest. A second Templederry goal would do little to stem the tide as additional scores from full forward Matthew Stapleton, substitute Patrick O’Connell, a long range Jody Harkin free and a well taken score by the immense Johnny McGrath at wing back sealed the win as we ran out 2-22 to 2-08 winners.
