With this in mind we will hold an Information Open Night on Wednesday September 28th in the McAuley Centre at 8pm.

So if you can do come along on the 28th and discover the difference that your contribution has made. All are most welcome.

JK Brackens

Senior hurlers through to last eight. Sunday last in Semple Stadium provided another significant first in the short life of JK Brackens GAA club as their victory over Nenagh Eire Og saw them qualify for the County Senior hurling quarter finals for the first time.

Victory seemed unlikely with forty two minutes gone as Brackens trailed by seven points but once Paddy Cadell set up Andrew Ormond for our opening goal it gave the whole team a new lease of life.

Shane Bourke sprung into action hitting 2-2 in the closing fifteen minutes, Lyndon Fairbrother was deadly accurate from placed balls while Shane Doyle and Andrew Ormond chipped in with a couple of great points from play. Drom, Upperchurch or Kilruane now provide the opposition ( draw took place on Monday night). These games will take place on the weekend of the 24th/25th.

This coming weekend provides a busy Saturday with our U-13 hurlers contesting the Group 1 final in Boherlahan ( see Clubzap for time) while our senior footballers take on Upperchurch/Drombane in Holycross at 4pm in the County quarter-final.

Our U-15 hurlers defeated Gortnahoe Glengoole last week to qualify for the Mid semi-final versus Holycross.

In U-17 action Brackens took on Boherlahan in Holycross on Monday of last week in the Mid quarter-final. In a very tight battle the lads were unlucky not to force extra-time, losing out by a single point on a 1-13 to 1-12 scoreline.

Well Done
Well done to Nancy Maher who won Sunday night's 50/50 draw worth €336. Nancy bought her winning ticket in Scizzor Sisters hair salon. Enjoy your winnings Nancy.

Congratulations to Paddy Guider who celebrated his 91st birthday on Wednesday.

Paddy has been immersed in GAA all his life and has been involved with College Hill, Templemore Eire Og and JK Brackens in many different capacities for over seventy years.

His contribution to the GAA was recognised by the Tipperary County Board when he received a Sean Ghael award in 2015.
Paddy is still in great health and loves to attend as many matches as he can.
May you enjoy many more years of the same. Happy Birthday Paddy.

BT Harps

It was a busy week on the playing front with many of our teams in action both at home and on the road.
Our U-16 girls recorded two fine wins beating Ballymackey (4-0) and Moneygall (8-0).

Their male counterparts were also in fine goalscoring form as they knocked seven past Killavilla.

In U-14 action our girls went down 5-1 away to Ballymackey while the boys reversed that result against the same opposition thanks to goals from Jack Noonan (2), Daniel Cummins, Stephen Fogarty and Fionn Slevin.

The U-14 B boys lost out to Lough Derg. Danny McGuinness landed all four goals as the U-12A team saw off Killavilla 4-0.
The B team had a fine 5-2 win over Moneygall.

Moira Ormond grabbed a goal for the U-12 girls but it wasn’t enough to see off Killavilla who claimed a 2-1 victory.

The Senior men's team were away to Ballmackey and were 2-0 down after a slow start. But goals from Sean McCormack and Marco Quinlan restored parity. But it was the home side who finished strongest to record a 4-2 win.
