On Sunday, March 25th Tipperary host Sligo in the fifth round of their Lidl National Ladies Football League division two campaign at Seán Treacy Park in Tipperary town (2pm). The Premier County are currently three points clear at the summit of the division following four successive victories over Armagh (2-12 to 2-10), Laois (5-14 to 1-5), Tyrone (0-12 to 0-9) and Cavan (1-13 to 3-4). So, will you be at Seán Treacy Park this Sunday to give this extraordinary bunch of Tipperary players the support that they deserve?
Sligo are bottom of the division two table with zero wins to their name while subsequent to Sunday's contest Tipperary will take on Clare (away) on the week-ending Sunday, April 1st.
Tipperary's final game during the group phase of the competition will see Shane Ronayne's exciting team host second-placed Waterford - this contest was postponed recently and will now take place on the week-ending Sunday, April 8th. The semi-finals of the league are scheduled to take place on the week-ending Sunday, April 22nd.
Tipperary will, of course, also have an eye on their Munster senior championship semi-final clash with the mighty Cork on June 2nd - Waterford take on Kerry on the opposite side of the draw.
This season Tipperary senior ladies football manager Shane Ronayne has added Cork’s Anne-Marie Ruby to his management team - Anne-Marie works alongside Elaine Harte and Tony Smith as a selector. Ronan Crosse operates as a physio with the team this season while Cahir’s Alan O’Connor is a key man in the set-up both in terms of skill development and strength and conditioning.
