Many clubs in the county are not only busy volunteering since March but some are also running events within their club and community to raise funds for various charities. Congratulations to a number of teams and clubs who recently completed superb fundraising ventures.
The Tipperary Senior and Intermediate Camogie teams, along with their management teams completed their running, walking and cycling 1,000km challenge over 5 days, to raise vital funds on behalf of 3 deserving charities:
- North Tipperary Hospice
- South Tipperary Hospice
- Laura Lynn Children’s Hospice
In total they raised €8,305, well done to all.
Grangemockler-Ballyneale GAA organised the Michael Hogan Commemoration Walk with all proceeds going to Pieta House. In total the club raised €5,078.18, another excellent return. In conjunction with the fundraising a commemorative jersey was raffled among all those that gave to the fundraising appeal with Ian Brett confirmed as the winner of the jersey.
Toomevara GAA Club ran a 48 hour relay event coinciding with Darkness Into Light raising over €6,000 for Pieta House through online donations to a giving page. Healthy Club Officer Denise Haverty and her team are particularly pleased with the engagement from players, parents, club members and the community. Well done to all in Toomevara and the surrounding areas.

Ailbe O'Connell RIP. Our sympathies go to his wife, Anna, and to the family and friends of the late Ailbe O'Connell, Emly, Co Tipperary and Rathfarnham, Dublin who passed away peacefully last weekend. Ailbe was a member of the Tipperary Supporters Club Committee for many years and was a very popular and committed Tipperary Supporter. Ailbe's nephew, Danny O'Connell, is a member of the Tipperary Supporters Club Committee. Ailbe was well known and respected for his work in the licenced trade in Dublin over many years. Ní bheidh a leithéad ann arís.
Ar dheis Dé go raibh an anam dílis.
