Following a poll hosted on the TipperaryLive.ie website Solohead's 2018 junior B county football final success has been nominated by blue and gold fans as the Premier County's GAA moment of the year. The Solohead lads attracted 28% of the vote while JK Bracken's (23%) were hot on their heels - this year JK Bracken's won the county minor A football championship, under-21A football championship and the junior A football championship.

On October 28th there was a delirious out-pouring of joy at Clonoulty when a ravenous Solohead side retrieved a six-point deficit before seeing off Moyne-Templetuohy in the Tipperary Water County Junior B Football Championship final - captain Noel Kennedy had the honour of collecting the Dr Marsh Cup from Football Board chairman Barry O’Brien and in doing so the West outfit won the club’s first adult county football title (0-11 to 0-9).
