Father Sheehy's, the home club of team captain Colin English, will host the official homecoming for the Tipperary under-21 hurlers on Sunday, September 2nd at the GAA grounds in Clogheen. And, the Fr Sheehy's club are delighted to announce that the Loose Cannons will feature during the festivities at 7pm.
Blue and gold supporters are encouraged to arrive early in order to enjoy an evening of great entertainment and to give the players the welcome that their All-Ireland final heroics deserve.
Despite losing the Munster final to Cork by thirteen points (1-13 to 2-23) Tipperary recovered in style to see off the challenge of Galway in the All-Ireland semi-finals (3-17 to 1-17) before beating red hot favourites Cork in the All-Ireland Under-21 Hurling Championship final at the Gaelic Grounds, Limerick on Sunday last (3-13 to 1-16).
The style of Tipperary's victory last Sunday has endeared this team to the blue and gold public. So, you can be sure and certain that a huge crowd will turn out in Clogheen on Sunday next in order to salute this latest generation of hurling heroes.
