Greg Broderick big an emotional farewell to Going Global this week.

We lead with Noel Dundon's story of how swooping buzzards are targeting terriers and small pets in Tipperary.

This week's edition also features reports and photographs from the Thurles and Nenagh Municipal District awards ceremonies while MHS Going Global, the most expensive Irish horse ever, has left The Ragg for pastures new after an emotional farewell.

Tributes have been paid to judge Michael Reilly and Niamh Dillon reports from a momentous day at Our Lady's Templemore as an €9 million extension is officially opened while the 'Wizard of Oz' musical wows audiences in Roscrea.

Noel Dundon reports on major concerns over teenage drinking in Thurles town while Terryglass pub owners are given a year to remedy a planning issue at Nenagh District Court. In farming, Moyne brothers demonstrate the benefits of forage crops.

In sport we report from the County Football Board convention and take a look ahead to the last 16 fixtures in the Dr Harty Cup which take place this week. Inside we mark the retirements of distinguished inter-county hurlers Paddy Stapleton and Gearoid Ryan while we also celebrate Padraic Maher who will succeed Brendan Maher as county senior hurling captain.

We feature reports from the under-21 hurling action and the county junior A hurling final alongside a report and photos from the medal presentation ceremony hosted in honour of the All-Ireland winning minor and senior hurling teams.
