Intercounty: Pride of place this week goes to Paul Maher and the Tipperary Senior Hurling team on their emphatic All Ireland win over Kilkenny on Sunday. All of Moyne Templetuohy are very proud of Pauls effort this year and it is no more than he deserves. Well done Paul! No rest however as we have two more club stars in All Ireland U20 Final action this Saturday at 6pm in Limerick where they take on Cork. Best wishes to Conor and Gearoid.
Ladies Football: Another super weekend for the Tipp Intermediate Ladies Football following their win over Sligo in the All Ireland Final. The club congratulate Roisín and Muireann and we wish them the very best of luck as they take on Meath in the All Ireland Final in a few weeks time.
Kilmacud 7’s: Well done to a handful of our Intermediate team who travelled to Kilmacud Crokes on Saturday last to play in the coveted Kilmacud 7’s tournament. The lads had a super weekend playing Mullagh, St. Oliver Plunketts and Naomh Barróg along the way.
