On this Saturday Tipp u16 lady footballers will attempt to win their fourth Munster title in a row when they take on Limerick in the final at 1pm in Ballyagran Co. Limerick.
Tipperary will go into the game with 7 of the 2010 panel involved in this year’s team and led by captain Kirsty Downey, will look to emulate their u14 counterparts and claim the 2011 Munster title.
Tipp began their campaign on April 7 when they took on Limerick in Cappawhite under lights and won 2-11 to 1-8. In their second game of the championship Waterford were the visitors to Cahir on the April 30 and Tipp that day gave an impressive display of football winning 5-11 to 1-10.
This sent them into the Munster final and with Limerick beating Waterford, set up a final date with Tipp on this Saturday.
The success of underage development in Tipperary in the past 2-3yrs is now reaping rewards with the u14s securing the All Ireland title a few weeks ago and now the u16s attempting to do the same.
There is certainly a lot of underage talent within Tipp Ladies football and this bodes well for the future. However next Saturday is the next step in that development process and on behalf of Tipp Ladies Football we would like to wish the management team of Manager Andrew Meaney, selectors Tony Fox, Karl McCarthy, Thos Condon and Siobhan O’Donnell and to captain Kirsty Downey and her team the very best of luck in the final.
Tipp Ladies Football are holding a FUNdamentals coaching course on Sunday, August 7 in Cahir. This is a very important course in the coaching of our players at club level so all club trainers and mentors who may not have this course done should avail of this opportunity to take part. Cost of the course is €20 and if interested contact Liam Shinnick: Development Officer or Andrew Meaney: Secretary.
