Small rural Tipperary club get proudly behind their county minor for Sunday

Small rural Tipperary club get proudly behind their county minor for Sunday

Christopher O'Donnell, Ballylooby/Castlegrace GAA Club, who will be part of the Tipperary minor team for Sunday's All-Ireland final v Offaly at Nowlan Park, Kilkenny

Tipperary All Ireland Minor Hurling
Best of luck to Christopher O’Donnell and all involved with the Tipperary Minor Hurling team in Sundays All-Ireland final against Offaly.
Christopher has been exceptional in all the games so far on the road to the final.

He is surely one of the first names that James Woodlock and his selectors put down when naming the team.
Everyone in Ballylooby/ Castlegrace GAA is incredibly proud of Christopher’s achievements to date and hopefully there will be a huge local crowd to cheer him on in Nowlan Park next Sunday.
