Last weekend saw us suffer defeat in the opening round of the county championship against Nenagh Eire Óg. In an even first half a goal from Loughlin Ryan saw us going into the break 1 point in arrears. Midway through the second half both sides were level at 1-14 apiece but it was Nenagh who did all the scoring from then on notching 1-7 to 0-1 to claim victory. Our next championship game will be later this summer after Tipperary’s intercounty campaign.
