Official GAA Cul Camp will take place in Mullinahone from 18th August to 22nd. Full details from Victor Direen.
Sunday in Semple Stadium was by and large a disappointing day for Mullinahone people. The loss to Limerick in the final minutes was a major “downer”. We didn’t even have the consolation as we often had since 1988 of a Mullinahone representative on the Tipp team playing well. Our early view of the programme saw Paul Curran and Eoin Kelly listed as numbers 25 and 26 and neither was brought on. In the Intermediate game, things went somewhat better. Sean O’Meara was a selector on the team, while Kevin Walzer was No. 18 on the programme.
He didn’t get a run as the team stole the game in extra time, but perhaps in the next round. Well done to Sean and Kevin. For Tipp’s seniors, it is going to be the roundabout route through the qualifiers. Now, it is back to senior club hurling for all our players and a virtual make or break game against Ballingarry next Sunday in Clonmel. Hurling supporters will be hoping to have their spirits lifted by good displays from the players and their selectors.
Irish Cancer Society
