Storm Dennis 'howler' forces cancellation of Tipperary soccer for second weekend running


Storm Dennis wiped out the Tipperary Soccer programme last weekend.

Tipperary soccer was forced to shutdown for a second consecutive weekend when Storm Dennis blew across the country on Saturday and Sunday.

While last weekend Storm Ciara was doing the damage – even if it she allowed the some Youths football to go ahead on the Saturday – this time around Dennis was a total Menace, with every game postponed including quite a few cup competitions.

It will prove a headache for the TS&DL organisers who now have some catching up to do and will be praying that things will improve greatly, weather-wise, from here in to enable them to complete their league and cup programme on schedule.

Among the big casualties on Sunday was the Munster Junior Cup 5th Round game at Cooke Park where defending champions St Michael’s of Tipperary Town were due to play Regional United B.

Fingers crossed that next weekend’s programme, as follows, goes ahead without any disruptions.
