How we miss a game of hurling right now.
Tipperary GAA PRO Joe Bracken brings you all the GAA news from County Tipperary
The following is a brief note of a webinar for club officers and club volunteers in the next week. It is hoped to continue to add to these and provide as many opportunities for remote based learning for club officers as possible over the coming weeks.
On Wednesday, April 29th at 6pm, there will be a webinar on 'Club Strategic Planning'. This is targeted chiefly at all club officers. A link will be provided on email to club secretaries a little closer to the time by the County Development Officer Mark McLoughlin. Pre-registration will be required via the Learning Portal.
